RUMORS FLY OF NOLAN TO PACKERS

The best thing about the most obvious, superficial analyses of NFL coaching connections is that, sometimes they’re accurate.
We suggested last night that former 49ers coach Mike Nolan could be the next defensive coordinator in Green Bay, due to the fact that Packers coach Mike McCarty worked as Nolan’s offensive coordinator in 2005.
A league source tells us that Nolan curently is in the process of lining up a staff of assistants, and the thinking is that Nolan will be the next defensive coordinator of the Packers.
The Packers announced on Monday the termination of defensive coordinator Bob Sanders and four defensive assistants.
