Default Kevin Greene puts on a coaching hat

Packers hire ex-Steeler Greene to coach linebackers
By Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel
Jan. 26, 2009 2:10 p.m.

Tampa -- 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.

Hmm....now that's a good move by the packers. I was skeptical about their move to the 3-4, but this may move just be what they needed

he did a great job the past offseason with woodley and james too

congrats Greene!!

Congrats to him. He will make a great coach. The Packers need a Olb and they should be fine.

Where is AJ Hawk, still in the middle of the 3-4? Greene will help them for sure, he's a serious guy and really understands the scheme for the defense.
