Mike Nolan Turned Down A Job Offer From The Packers Last Year

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Mike Nolan was offered the DC job last season that ended up in the hands of Dom Capers:

The final mystery of the Green Bay Packers’ defensive coordinator search last year has been solved: Mike Nolan, the first candidate interviewed, was offered the job by coach Mike McCarthy. It had long been assumed that Nolan was offered the position, but neither Nolan nor McCarthy would talk about it on the record. “I wouldn’t say I turned them down,” Nolan said Monday before practices started at the Senior Bowl. “I had two great offers and, for personal reasons only, I chose the one that most appealed to me. I really wanted to stay close to California. Denver allowed me to do that.” Dom Capers, the fourth candidate offered the Packers’ job, accepted it.
