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.

More than 90 minutes after the initial report, 84 firefighters and 26 units were still on the scene. A NY fire department statement said the injuries sustained at the blazer were not life threatening.

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.

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.
