Kevin Greene heading to Green Bay -- as a coach
Interesting move in Green Bay, where new defensive coordinator Dom Capers reportedly will hire one of his former players to coach outside linebackers in the Packers' new 3-4 scheme.
Kevin Greene, a two-time NFL sack leader, has agreed to join the coaching staff, according to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The move will shift assistant head coach Winston Moss to inside linebackers coach, according to the report. Moss previously had responsibility for all linebackers.
Greene was a highly successful player and is a believer in Capers' system. He has almost no experience as an NFL assistant, but Greene's presence will help Capers instill his vision of how a 3-4 outside linebacker should play.
Based on media reports and announcements, here is the way the Packers' new defensive coaching staff appears to be shaping up:
- Coordinator: Dom Capers
- Defensive line: Mike Trgovac
- Asst. head coach/inside linebackers: Winston Moss
- Outside linebackers: Kevin Greene
- Defensive backs: Joe Whitt Jr.
