After losing out on his top two candidates, it appears Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy is casting a wider net to find his next defensive coordinator.

New England special assistant Dom Capers is in town Friday and interviewing with McCarthy, according to Adam Schefter of Capers has a long history of success as a defensive coordinator, having served in that role in Pittsburgh, Jacksonville and Miami in addition to his tenures as the head coach in Carolina and Houston.

It's obvious that McCarthy is seeking a highly experienced, if not high profile, replacement for the fired Bob Sanders. His first two candidates, Mike Nolan and Gregg Williams, are also longtime coordinators and former head coaches who ultimately took jobs elsewhere. Former St. Louis and New Orleans coach Jim Haslett also has interviewed.
