The Green Bay Packers have fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who served in his role since 2009.
ESPN wrote that "a source said Capers was let go Sunday night after the Packers' season-ending 35-11 loss at Detroit."
Several other members of the Packers' defensive coaching staff also will be let go, a source told ESPN.
It's just the third time in McCarthy's 12 years as head coach he has fired a coordinator. McCarthy fired defensive coordinator Bob Sanders following the 2008 season, which was the last time -- until this year -- the Packers missed the playoffs. He also fired special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum after the 2014 season.
It's not known whether Capers, 67, will retire from coaching. He said last month that he planned to coach "as long as I enjoy it."
"If I ever feel like I can't come in and give as much as I've got and do the kind of job that you want to do, then I won't do it anymore," said Capers, who has been in the NFL since 1986 and was a head coach for the Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans.
