Dom Capers, Packers’ defensive boss since ’09, fired

The Green Bay Packers will have a new defensive coordinator next season.

Coach Mike McCarthy fired Dom Capers, who has run his defense since the 2009 season. A source said Capers was let go Sunday night after the Packers’ season-ending 35-11 loss at Detroit.

Inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac also were let go, according to a league source.

On the flip side, veterans Danny Green and Ekpe Udoh fall off the list this week.

So proud of the way the team competed today. Showed a lot of character all day. Especially @drewstanton, he has the heart of a champion. Played the last two weeks for his brothers despite an ACL tear. Love ya man!!

Stanton missed five games from Week 11 to Week 15 after taking over for starting quarterback Carson Palmer in Week 8 because of a sprained knee.

Stanton threw for 145 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 15-for-34 passing in Sunday’s game. Afterward, coach Bruce Arians praised Stanton for his gutsy play, without saying anything about the injury.

USA goalie Jake Oettinger did not allow a goal in the shootout, while Kieffer Bellows and Brady Tkachuk each scored as the Americans topped Canada in a rematch of last year’s gold-medal game, also won by Team USA in a shootout.
