Packers sign Mike McCarthy to contract extension
The Green Bay Packers signed coach Mike McCarthy to a multi-year contract extension.
He was already under contract through the 2015 season. He's now under contract for several more years along with general manager Ted Thompson. Thompson is under contract through 2018.
"This is a great place," McCarthy said. " I’m very blessed, very fortunate to have the opportunity to coach here. This is something that the organization wanted. I was thrilled about the opportunity to continue, so that’s all I’m really thinking about is moving forward.”
McCarthy figures to be in Green Bay for a long time.
"I’m a young guy," he said. "I’m not thinking about the end, that’s for sure. This is a great place. I’m very blessed, fortunate to have the opportunity to coach here. That’s all I’m really thinking about. In fact, I’m a little uncomfortable talking about it at this time of the year.”
