  • Reports: Packers part ways with Dom Capers, defensive coaches

In an offseason of significant changes, the Green Bay Packers should have stability at the head coaching position. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the organization has inked the head coach to a one-year extension that will run through the 2019 season. Fortunately for the Packers, that will not be the case with Mike McCarthy, who was apparently given an extension during the season that no one talked about at the time.

The Green Bay Packers fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers earlier on Monday and now they seem to be shuffling the front office around as well.

"Mike is our man; he is our coach", Murphy said. Bennett is a former receivers coach, and there's some consideration to moving him back into that role.

Things could get awkward depending on how the GM search plays out, although it's widely believed an internal candidate will eventually fill the role, with either Eliot Wolf and Brian Gutenkunst emerging as likely in-house replacements for Thompson.

Thompson has been the team's general manager, executive vice president and director of football operations since 2005.

It's possible the Packers could extend McCarthy again or start over with a new deal once a general manager is hired.

McCarthy is 131-78-1 (including 10-8 in the postseason) with one Super Bowl in his 12 National Football League seasons.
