Thompson out as Packers General Manager

  • There are house divided stories all the time but nothing quite like the Hartman brothers out of Manitowoc County

However, it seems the one constant that will remain is head coach Mike McCarthy.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, the Packers extended the contract of coach Mike McCarthy during the season, tacking a year onto his deal and extending him through the 2019 season.

McCarthy certainly brings some stability to Green Bay, especially with the firing of defensive coordinator Dom Capers earlier this week and Ted Thompson leaving his post as general manager.

However, adding just one year to his contract would allow the next general manager to seriously entertain a coaching change after the 2018 season. Fortunately for the Packers, that will not be the case with Mike McCarthy, who was apparently given an extension during the season that no one talked about at the time.

There also could be some shakeup on the offensive staff, a source said. They lost wide receivers coach Luke Getsy to Mississippi State.

If the Packers choose to promote from within, there are several potential candidates, including director of football operations Eliot Wolf, CEO Mark Murphy, vice president Russ Ball, director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, or senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith.

McCarthy, 54, holds a regular-season record of 121-70-1 through 12 seasons in Green Bay.
