Packers head coach McCarthy given 1-year contract extension

Ted Thompson is out after 13 years as general manager but will remain as senior adviser of football operations. The coach added he's involved in the GM search led by team president Mark Murphy.

This should be an attractive opening since the Packers aren't far off from returning to contender status. Presumably, McCarthy could have tried to bring back Van Pelt, one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' closest confidants on the staff, had he wanted to.

"I felt that he should've been better prepared for the situation that he was put into", McCarthy said.
"We want to move quickly but we also want to make sure we get the right person".

The Packers have several in-house candidates.

McCarthy is expected to address the changes at his season wrap-up news conference on Thursday. "We have all the confidence in the world in Mike", Murphy said.

Thompson was hired as the Packers' general manager in 2005, and the team had a 125-82-1 record and won Super Bowl XLV under his watch. It was only the fourth time in Thompson's tenure that the Packers didn't reach the postseason.

While it's not fair to say the lack of success in Green Bay is all his fault. his piece of the pie is definitely the biggest.

But the defense slipped to 22nd in each of the past two seasons despite being stocked with high draft picks. I think everybody in our business has an ego. I love playing for Dom. "Are we doing everything we need to do?" All aspects of football operations will be evaluated once the coaching staff is set. And then you see the pictures, and you even laugh harder. He coached running backs for two years before he took over the quarterbacks (he also coached receivers and quarterback in 2015).

"I want to thank each of these men and their families for all that they gave to the Packers during their time here", head coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement. "I remember just laughing at ourselves".

The standards are high in a place nicknamed "Titletown". Injuries have plagued the cornerback position. Rodgers will turn 35 years old toward the end of next season, but he has not shown any signs of slowing down over the last couple years. Green Bay has finished in the top 10 in sacks in six of the last eight seasons.
