Capers To Packers: Another One Bites The Dust

If the Cowboys are going to upgrade their coaching staff in any way, shape or form, they better stop operating at a snails pace.

Dom Capers, the former head coach of the Carolina Panthers and the Houston Texans, has accepted the Defensive Coordinator position with the Green Bay Packers.

Capers was one of those options that I had hoped the Cowboys would consider as part of an off-season shake-up.

NFL.com posted the following:

The offer came after the two men spent part of Friday and much of Saturday discussing their philosophies on defense and what it would take to turn the Packers’ defense around.

In Capers, McCarthy is getting a coach who cut his teeth in the same 3-4 system the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens used in their AFC Championship Game battle Sunday at Heinz Field. Capers took over the Steelers’ defense in 1992 and upon helping coach Bill Cowher build an eventual Super Bowl winner was hired as the expansion Carolina Panthers’ head coach.

Capers was being pursued by the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos.
