Capers was Greene’s defensive coordinator during Greene’s first two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1993-94. Capers was then his head coach with the Carolina Panthers in 1996 and again in 1998, and the two coached together in Green Bay for five seasons (2009-13).
“He’s had a remarkable impact on my life and my family’s life,” Greene said in a short Twitter video regarding the announcement. “No question it’s got to be Dom Capers.”
Conveniently, Capers will already be in Canton, Ohio, on induction weekend because the Packers will be playing in the Hall of Fame Game to kick off the 2016 preseason. Former Packers QB Brett Favre will also be inducted then, but he has not yet publicly named a presenter.
