It's finally over. The Green Bay Packers have hired Dom Capers to be their new defensive coordinator.
Capers, 58 a longtime coach with a long resume, reached an agreement with the team late Sunday. Capers has worked for the Saints, the Steelers, the Patriots, and was the head coach of the Carolina Panthers in addition to stints in Jacksonville, and Houston.
Capers is best known for running a 3-4 defense but has plenty of experience with other schemes. Details of the deal are not known at this time.
When he was hired in New England last season a Boston paper noted the following:
"It is rare to have the opportunity to add someone with Capers' experience and expertise. Capers has a well-deserved reputation for generating heat on the quarterback in a variety of ways. His hiring was considered a coup when he joined the club in February 2008. Belichick pointed out that it is not often an opportunity arises to hire a two-time NFL head coach."
Let the moaning or praise begin. Either way, thank the heaven above it's over. It also shows you can't believe everything you read now can you.
