'The players respect Jon, and I think he's a good teacher," said Dom Capers about his former assistant.

Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers didn't need any prompting to tout his former assistant, Jon Hoke, for the Eagles' defensive coordinator post.

"He was the defensive coordinator for Steve Spurrier at Florida when I hired him," said Capers, head coach of the expansion Houston Texans when he hired Hoke in 2002. "I like Jon a lot. I think he's got a really good presence. He's smart. The players respect Jon, and I think he's a good teacher. I think he did a good job with the Chicago secondary this year."

Hoke has a reputation as a whip-cracker.

"He'll challenge them, but I think they respect that," Capers said of Hoke, who interviewed with the Eagles Monday.
