Bates was the interim in Miami after Wanny got canned in 2004. However, Saban had his own DC, so Bates went to GB. After Sherman got tossed, what I've heard (who really knows) is that the Packers kind of gave him the ol' wink-wink that he'd be taking over. Then out of nowhere, McCarthy gets the nod.
