Former Packers coach Mike Pettine sells house in Bellevue
BELLEVUE - Former Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine sold his house at 2825 Creekwood Circle for $679,000.
Pettine, whose contract with the Packers was not renewed at the end of the 2020 season, is now a coach for the Chicago Bears. He listed the house for $689,900.
The house, on 1.13 acres, is 4,920 square feet with four bedrooms and 3½ baths. It was built in 2008. Pettine bought the property in March 2018 for $569,000, as recorded with the Brown County Register of Deeds.
It includes an open-floor concept, floor-to-ceiling windows, a main-suite retreat, and a sound system throughout. The lower level has a home theater, bar/lounge area, workout room and a full bedroom and bath. The large back yard includes a built-in gas fire pit and poured patio.
The sale closed on March 26. Photos of the house can be seen here.
Pettine joined the Packers as defensive coordinator in 2018 under then head coach Mike McCarthy. He previously was a consultant with the Seattle Seahawks in 2017 and head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2014 and 2015.
He replaced Don Capers as defensive coordinator. Under his guidance, the Packers' defense in 2018 improved from 22nd (348.9 per game) in yards and 26th (24 points per game) in scoring in Capers' final season to ninth in yards (334) and 13th in scoring (23.1) in 2020. It was the Packers' first year finishing in the top 10 in yards since 2010.
But the Packers lost two consecutive NFC championship games, including a 37-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in 2019 when they gave up 285 rushing yards.
The Packers refocused the defense on the run game in 2020. After finishing 23rd against the run (120.1 rushing yards per game) in 2019, the Packers ranked 13th (112.8 rushing yards) in 2020.
There was regression in other areas, most notably in turnovers. The Packers tied for 25th with 18 takeaways in 2020, a year after they were tied for seventh with 25 takeaways.
