Packers Fire Head Coach Mike McCarthy

Irene MckinneyDec 03, 2018

According to Schefter, McCarthy wasn't expecting it - and neither were most.

The Green Bay Packers have fired Mike McCarthy as head coach following their loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As I've written numerous times, McCarthy's tenure in Green Bay was more successful in aggregate than he is generally given credit for, and Aaron Rodgers has certainly not been blameless in the slide.

Joe Philbin was named interim head coach.

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers", Murphy said in a statement after Sunday's defeat, their fifth in six games, saw them fall to 4-7-1.

Cover 2's "On the Clock" discussed Mark Murphy's decision to fire head coach Mike McCarthy. Rodgers attempted 50 passes but completed only 31 of them for 233 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, a lot of them in the second half.

Mike McCarthy says he "didn't do a good enough job" in a game his team "needed to win" after the Packers fell to the Cardinals 20-17.

Gonzalez made his Arizona debut in the Cardinals' upset win against the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday. McCarthy and Don McCafferty are the only two Super Bowl-winning coaches to be fired by their teams in the middle of a season.

Thirteen weeks into the season, there wasn't much difference between them.

"We didn't play well today", McCarthy said.

That sounds like a man that knows his time could be up, and we believe that to be the case.

"Teams that want any shot of having some postseason success have got to win these games".

The offensive players, Rodgers said, bear blame for whatever happens in the future. They need to make sure they get this one right, and we all know now that McCarthy will at least be in the mix.

"I'm going to do whatever they tell me to do", Kumerow said.
