Packers fire head coach Mike McCarthy following loss to Cardinals

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Packers have fired head coach Mike McCarthy following a dismal 4-7-1 season. He is 125-77-2 all-time as head coach in Green Bay.

McCarthy is in his 13th season with the Packers. He was hired in January 2006 and led the team to a Super Bowl title in 2010.

Joe Philbin has been named interim head coach, according to Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy.

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers," said Murphy, "As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately."

Murphy is scheduled to speak to the media tomorrow at 1:45pm. 

Fox NFL Sunday's Jay Glazer said he talked to McCarthy shortly after the announcement. Glazer tweeted McCarthy had "nothing but praise for the Packer's administration."
