It appears assistant offensive line coach Mike Solari’s brief time in Green Bay is coming to an end.

Green Bay Packers assistant offensive line coach Mike Solari talks to his players during training camp practice at Ray Nitschke Field on Friday, Aug. 7, 2015.

Solari is set to become the New York Giants offensive line coach after interviewing with the team this week, according to multiple reports. The Packers hired him before last season after spending five seasons as the San Francisco 49ers offensive line coach. He assisted Packers offensive line coach James Campen during this past season.

In all, Solari has spent most of the past three decades working with NFL offensive lines. Through stops with the Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks and 49ers, he built the reputation as being one of the best offensive line coaches in the league.

Solari would join new Giants coach Ben McAdoo's staff. McAdoo was the Packers tight ends coach from 2006-11 and the quarterbacks coach in 2012 and 2013 before becoming the Giants offensive coordinator in 2014. and follow him on Twitter @ByRyanWood
