The Dom Capers era in Green Bay is over after nine seasons.
ESPN first reported the news.
Capers' defense cratered from there as the coordinator became a punching bag for Packers fans. Green Bay finished in the bottom third of total defense four times in seven years under Capers, including a league-worst ranking in 2011.
Riddled with injuries, a porous secondary and a middling pass rush, the Packers' D ranked 26th in scoring defense, 22nd in yards allowed per game, 23rd in passing yards per game, 17th versus the run and 17th in sacks in 2017.
After years of defending his defensive coordinator, head coach Mike McCarthy finally made the switch some fans believe should have happened years ago.
