Kevin Greene, who was finally elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on his fifth try, has chosen Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers as his presenter.
Capers coached Greene in both Pittsburgh and Carolina. He also brought Greene, who served as the Packers outside linebackers coach from 2009-13, into coaching.
“No question he’s had a remarkable impact in my life and in my family’s life,” Greene said. “He’s helped me provide for me and my family — [wife] Tara and [children] Gavin and Gabby — so much through the years. He just had such a remarkable impact on my life. No question it’s got to be Dom Capers.”
Greene played for the Los Angeles Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers during his 15-year career. He was a five-time Pro Bowlers and three-time first-team All Pro.
Greene’s 160 career sacks rank him third all-time in that category.
It’s interesting that Greene would choose Capers as his presenter.
Greene abruptly left coaching after the 2013 season to spend time with his family. He expressed an interest in returning to coaching and returning to the Packers earlier this year.
At that time, Capers lobbed up a B.S. response about the Packers’ staff being full, even though they’ve created positions before. If Capers and Greene are still pals, then you can assume it’s head coach Mike McCarthy who doesn’t want Greene back in Green Bay.
