Mike McCarthy Fired by Packers, Joe Philbin Named Interim Head Coach

The Green Bay Packers announced they fired head coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday during his 13th season at the helm.

McCarthy spoke with Fox Sports' Jay Glazer about the news, saying, "I'm proud I was part of the Packers family, proud to be part of such a great organization."

President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Murphy released a statement on the team's decision:

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers. As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately. Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field. We want to thank Mike, his wife, Jessica, and the rest of the McCarthy family for all that they have done for the Packers and the Green Bay and Wisconsin communities. We will immediately begin the process of selecting the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers."

1. Bye Mike! A good run but it now comes to an end...


Wonder if another team will pick him up?

2. No doubt about it.

But if they hadn't done it I can imagine Aaron Rodgers would start looking for another team to play for.
