Green Bay Packers' Dom Capers Would Consider Head Coaching Opportunities

Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers was a popular man at the 2011 Super Bowl Media Day because one of the keys to the game is how his defense does against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Capers also has ties to Dick LeBeau and the Steelers -- he worked in Pittsburgh from 1992-94 -- so he's got an interesting story this week.

Capers discussed a number of things but one popped out at me -- he would consider head coaching opportunities if it was the right place at the right time. Capers has been a head coach on two previous occasions in Carolina and Houston. 

Capers also made another important point: "If you've been in the business long enough you know that when you have good people you're going to lose them." 

This happens with Super Bowl teams and their coordinators. If you're coaching on a Super Bowl team, you're probably doing something right. And the enhanced media attention this week raises their profile slightly so that the next time the coaching hiring cycle comes around their name will be in the mix.

The Packers have one of the best defenses in the NFL and Capers is given credit for that so expect to hear his name pop up now and again regarding coaching jobs in the future.
