Mike McCarthy became the second NFL coach to be dismissed this season after the Packers parted ways with him on Sunday night.
The Green Bay Packers made the drastic move many were growing to expect this season.
Coach Mike McCarthy was fired by the franchise on Sunday night after a 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, ending his nearly 13-year tenure that included a Super Bowl victory.
Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will take over as interim coach of the 4-7-1 Packers.
“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 and CEO Mike Murphy said. “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.
