Packers, Capers Reach Agreement On Deal

The Green Bay Packers and Dom Capers had reached an agreement on a deal that would bring the longtime defensive coordinator and former head coach to Green Bay. Capers made himself known with a 3-4 defense but he has worked with other defenses as well and probably will employ a hybrid 3-4/4-3 defense. This season, Capers was a special assistant with the New England Patriots, coaching mostly in the secondary. Capers was the fourth of four prominent defensive coaches to interview with McCarthy. He visited Friday night and Saturday with McCarthy and then agreed to a deal Sunday night.
