Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry understands the questions about his track record. Barry had porous defenses in his two previous stints as a coordinator with Detroit and Washington. He followed that up with a successful four-year stint as the Los Angeles Rams’ linebackers coach. He believes the lessons from Detroit and Washington will help this time. Packers coach Matt LaFleur worked with Barry as a Rams assistant in 2017. The Packers announced less than a week after their NFC championship game loss to Tampa Bay that Mike Pettine wouldn’t be back for a fourth season as defensive coordinator.
