Replacement For Joe Barry Emerges Amid Defensive Performance Vs. Giants

The Green Bay Packers’ defense had an abysmal performance against third-string quarterback Tommy DeVito of the New York Giants.  While no game in the NFL is guaranteed, based on the way the Packers have played over three weeks many figured they would be in control all night.  That clearly wasn’t the case.  The defense allowed Tommy DiVito to move the ball up and down the field (especially via quarterback runs) all afternoon.

The performance allowed the Giants to score 24 points, including the game winning drive that led to a field goal with no time remaining.  With Joe Barry’s seat hotter than ever, these are the top five replacements Green Bay could target.

Ejiro Evero – Carolina Panthers

Ejiro Evero spurns Vikings, accepts Panthers defensive coordinator job

As defensive coordinator in 2022, Evero led the Broncos to a top-10 ranking in total defense (320 yards per game, seventh) and third in net yards per passing attempt (5.6 – tied with Kansas City). During this season, he coached cornerback Patrick Surtain II to the Pro Bowl.

Evero was a safeties and secondary coach with the Rams for five years before joining the Broncos. He oversaw the safeties from 2017-20 before serving as defensive passing game coordinator and secondary coach for Los Angeles’ 2021 Super Bowl run. In 2021, the Rams tied for third in interceptions (19) and had 10 players intercept a pass.

In 2016, Evero actually worked for the Packers as a defensive quality control coach. During his time in Green Bay, Evero worked under Dom Capers. Evero was part of the staff that led the Packers to a 10-6 record that season.

Under the leadership of head coach Frank Reich, Evero was hired by the Carolina Panthers on 5 February 2023 as their defensive coordinator.  However, given the Panthers’ 1-12 start, there will likely be numerous changes within the organization.  Evero has been linked to the Packers many times in the past, this off-season the Packers should make a splash move on the defensive coaching side of the ball.  Evero would fit that type of move.
