The Green Bay Packers are set to hire ex-Cleveland Browns' head coach Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Pettine worked as a consultant for the Seattle Seahawks last season.

Pettine, formerly the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, is from the Baltimore Ravens' model of aggressive defense.

But it's not just the prestige (and the inevitable Instagram ) people are after - you can win money by finding the white eggs . There are even more eggs on offer in the United Kingdom with a prize of £1000 on offer - as well as a one-of-a-kind £2000 egg.

The Browns went just 10-22 under Pettine, and his time as a defensive coordinator in the AFC East was something of a mixed bag.

Pettine, 51, has not coached in the National Football League since going 10-22 in 2014-2015 as the Cleveland Browns' head coach.

Pettine would succeed Dom Capers, who was sacked last week after a disappointing 7-9 season. During his first year, the Jets finished first in points and yards allowed.

Suzuki and Komatsu had been considered among the top candidates to qualify for their home Games in Tokyo. Suzuki and Komatsu had been teammates at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships in the Czech Republic.

As a result, Pettine's potential hiring may have caused a ripple effect. Prior to that, however, Pettine was a successful defensive coordinator. Moss also interviewed with the Detroit Lions about their head coaching job.

Based on multiple reports, Pettine agreed to a contract and will replace Dom Capers after an extensive search by head coach Mike McCarthy that included former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.

The Packers fired Capers following a 7-9 season in 2017 that was heavily influenced by an injury to quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
