Pack hired Kevin Greene to coach outside linebackers
The Green Bay Packers have agreed to terms with one of defensive coordinator Dom Capers' most productive players to join their staff.
Former Pittsburgh and Carolina outside linebacker Kevin Greene has been hired to coach the outside linebackers, a club source said. No contract has been signed yet but the club is expected to announce his addition in the next week or so.
Greene, who led the NFL in sacks in 1994 with the Steelers and 1996 with the Panthers, has mostly been out of football since his career ended, but he has worked six summer coaching internships while maintaining a career in business. A dynamic and outgoing personality, Greene was a staple of Capers' 3-4 defensive scheme.
Coach Mike McCarthy and Capers both felt Greene would be able to teach the team's outside linebackers the new scheme.
With Greene's hiring, assistant head coach Winston Moss' title will now be inside linebackers coach.
