Bennett, however, could remain with Green Bay's staff.

McCarthy is under contract through the 2019 season, thanks to the one-year extension he received late last year.

Mike McCarthy is scheduled to hold his season ending Press Conference Thursday at 11:00am.

The changes on the Packers coaching staff won't be limited to the defense. Two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers is expected to return to full health next season following a collarbone injury. They also could consider Giants coach Ben McAdoo, who was on McCarthy's staff in Green Bay from 2006-13.

For the first time in Mike McCarthy's coaching career, he will be working for someone who didn't hire him.

According to reports, the Packers have fired Offensive Coordinator Edgar Bennett and Quarterback Coach Alex Van Pelt. Philbin spent the past two seasons as the Indianapolis Colts' assistant head coach and offensive line coach under Chuck Pagano, who was sacked earlier this week.

"This is a special place and we've had some success along the way, but it's the relationships that I value most", he said in a statement.

Capers had been defensive coordinator since 2009. The team also announcing that assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line coach Mike Trgovac were leaving as well.

"The most important thing is the communication and the connection between the GM and the head coach", McCarthy said.

An NFL source said Murphy meant to start interviewing candidates today, and that he'd start with the team's three in-house candidates: director of football operations Eliot Wolf, director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, and vice president of football administration Russ Ball. As of Thursday, when Murphy began to conduct interviews with in-house candidates, there had been no contact between the two sides. Thompson is slated to continue to break down tape and work on scouting prospects but will no longer have decision-making power in the personnel department. The Packers had an opportunity to trade Hundley during last year's draft. It's possible the assistance identified Whaley as a candidate Murphy should pursue. "These are hard personal decisions and we hope for the best for their families moving forward".
