Packers head coach McCarthy given 1-year contract extension

Packers head coach McCarthy given 1-year contract extension

The extensive changes are a reflection of the falloff in the Packers' play in going 7-9 after eight straight trips to the playoffs, quarterback Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone notwithstanding.

And even though he received a one-year extension last month, putting him under contract through the 2019 season, not even McCarthy is a sure thing to be coaching the team next season.

Mike McCarthy is scheduled to hold his season ending Press Conference Thursday at 11:00am. Philbin was the Colts' offensive line coach last season.

The organization is searching for a general manager while Ted Thompson transitions to a senior adviser role in the front office.

Interviews for the defensive coordinator position will begin soon, and McCarthy's choice will be involved in hiring replacements for departed defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley and McGarigle. In all, Green Bay defenders have made 17 appearances in the Pro Bowl during Capers' tenure. "The standard of the Green Bay Packers is to win world championships", McCarthy said, his voice growing more forceful by the word. "I'm more focused on the fit of the GM", McCarthy said. This about doing what's in the best interests of the Green Bay Packers.

Hanging over all of it, though, is the uncertainty of who'll be the team's next GM - someone who, according to team president/CEO Mark Murphy, will maintain the power to hire and fire the head coach.

Despite the clear injury-related reasons for the poorer performance, the Packers are making a bunch of changes to their offense this offseason.

So far the Packers have made four great moves to be successful going forward: new GM, new defensive coordinator, Davante Adams' four-year $58 million deal, Corey Linsley's three-year $25.5 million deal.

"The part that no one wants to talk about is the personal aspect of it". In 2010, Capers coordinated a unit that finished No. 2 in the league in scoring defense (15.0 points per game) en route to winning Super Bowl XLV. "We had a hell of a partnership for 12 years".

"We've had so much change come through here that I don't think we ever had a chance to develop a team", Clinton-Dix said, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

We all saw what backup quarterback Brett Hundley gave the Green Bay Packers in 2017.

Needless to say, the Packers are not messing around.
