Mike McCarthy was surprised by firing

Mike McCarthy

McCarthy was officially canned after Green Bay dropped yet another game to fall to 4-7-1 on the season. "As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Packers president Mark Murphy said in a statement.

Murphy said the process of hiring the next head coach would begin immediately.

McCarthy's career in Green Bay ends with him having posted a 125-77-2 record en route to leading the team to one Super Bowl title.

The former Arizona Cardinals head coach has recently expressed his intent to return to the sidelines.

"I never thought that it was possible. It's high standards, and when we fall short of that, it's consequences".

The opening play of the fourth quarter was a ideal example of Green Bay's offensive struggles. "To show up Monday, knock out the film and go through the rest of the season like nothing happened. We do. It's tough". They need to make sure they get this one right, and we all know now that McCarthy will at least be in the mix. Our coaches do a good job I think preparing us to do that. "I appreciate everything he has done for this team". McDaniels brings temperament issues to the position, but if he can keep things under control, he's got the mind to expand Green Bay's offense.

The temperature was freezing, the snow fell in the first half and the Cardinals historically didn't play well at Lambeau Field.

However, a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve to start the year until he was designated to return to practice two weeks ago. "This is a hard place to get a win and we needed it badly. It's Titletown for a reason so even though our chances of making the playoffs now are slim, we are going to keep fighting".
