Packers Fire Mike McCarthy After Loss To Cardinals

On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers lost a home game to the Arizona Cardinals, who are one of the worst teams in the league this season. The loss also knocked the Packers out of the playoff race, leaving a lot of people wondering if the Packers would make a coaching change after the season. It’s over Mike McCarthy.

However, the Packers opted not to waste any time and announced that they fired Super Bowl-winning head coach Mike McCarthy shortly after the game.

“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,” Packers president Mark Murphy said in a statement. “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.”

Before the team announced his firing, McCarthy was asked about being basically eliminated from the playoffs with four games left to play.

“I mean, I’ve never been in this spot,” McCarthy said in his postgame news conference. “I’m not going to act like I know what the hell I’m going to do tomorrow when they get in here. So we’re going to do what we always do: We’re going to represent the Packers the right way, I know that. Other than that, we’ll focus on what’s in front of us.”

McCarthy was 125-77-2 in 13 seasons with the Packers and had a 10-8 in the playoffs. He led the team to a Super Bowl win in 2010 and lost three NFC Championship games.
