Dom Capers is no longer the Green Bay Packers' defensive coordinator.
Whoever takes over as general manager will have to make a decision on what to do with head coach Mike McCarthy, who is entering the final year of his contract.
The Packers finished the season 7-9 after Sunday's 35-11 loss to the Lions in Detroit. The writing has been on the wall for this potential move for a while now, and now that the Packers are coming off a disappointing season that sees them miss the playoffs, Green Bay will shake things up internally. Special teams coordinator Mike Stock retired - although he may have been encouraged to do so - after the 2008 season. Capers hasn't finished with a top-10 defense since the Super Bowl season of 2010, when it ranked fifth.
The Packers finished the 2017 season 26th in scoring defense (24.0) and 22nd in yards allowed (348.9). The 67-year-old has been an assistant coach in the National Football League since 1986.More news: Iran Protests Target Basij Religious Schools, Offices

Capers' fate seemed to be sealed two weeks ago after the Packers were eliminated from playoff contention and McCarthy said: "We have to be honest about the patterns of negativity and positivity".
The Packers' defensive coaching staff included seven assistants this season: Assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss, Trgovac, McCurley, safeties coach Darren Perry, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt, defensive front assistant Jerry Montgomery and defensive quality control coach Tim McGarigle. He ran the Carolina Panthers' defense from 2003 to "08". Green Bay and Washington finished tied for the 13 pick based on record, however a tie-breaker gave the Redskins the 13 selection.
The Packers also could look at outside candidates.
