Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Packers are "preparing" to nab former Cleveland Browns coach, as well as former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator. The Browns fired Pettine after a poor 2015, finishing with a 10-22 record.

Philbin was sacked by the Dolphins four games into the 2015 season following a 1-3 start.

Philbin has an extensive history with the Packers. Also departing Green Bay are quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt and Luke Getsy, who left to become the offensive coordinator at Mississippi.

Pettine had a top-10 defense in each of his five seasons as a coordinator, including first (2009), third (2010), fifth (2011) and eighth-place (2012) rankings with the Jets and a 10th-place showing with the Bills in 2013.

Whether Philbin will call the offensive plays in 2018 remains uncertain, as McCarthy has called the plays since 2015.

Pettine would succeed Dom Capers following his firing earlier this month and join Joe Philbin after Packers coach Mike McCarthy hired the former Dolphins coach earlier this week.

The Packers fired Capers after a 7-9 season ended with Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense and 26th in points allowed.
