After Sunday’s loss the the Arizona Cardinals, the Packers have fired head coach Mike McCarthy. Joe Philbin will fill in as the interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season. Mike McCarthy had a career record of 125-77-2 over 13 seasons as the Packers head coach. The Packers won Super Bowl 45 with McCarthy as their head coach.

The Packers had one of the most dangerous offenses year after year under Mike McCarthy. The major knock on McCarthy has always been that he was given one of the most talented quarter backs to ever play in Aaron Rodgers, and he only won one Super Bowl in 13 seasons.

The Packers are currently 4-7-1 and have lost three straight games, and five of their last six. Coming into the season, some believed the Packers would be Super Bowl contenders. They brought in Jimmy Graham and Muhammed Wilkerson as free agents, giving Aaron Rodgers a red zone weapon, as well as adding a pro-bowler to the defensive line. The Packers have lost multiple games this season due to self inflicted errors. Look for the Packers to get back on track next season with a new coach.
