Packers sign Mike McCarthy to multi-year extension
Monday November 3rd, 2014

The Green Bay Packers have signed coach Mike McCarthy to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced on Monday. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the extension is a three-year deal through 2018. 

In eight-plus seasons under McCarthy, the Packers have gone 87-48 in the regular season with six playoff appearances and four NFC North division titles. Green Bay beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV following the 2010 season. 

McCarthy also notably oversaw the team's transition at starting quarterback from future Hall of Famer Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers.

“We are very happy to extend our relationship with Mike,” General manager Ted Thompson said in a statement. “Over the past nine years, he’s provided great stability and consistency to the Packers organization and our community as an excellent coach and leader. He’s a good man and we look forward to the future with Mike as our head coach.”

The Packers signed GM Ted Thompson to a multi-year extension this summer.

Green Bay is currently 5-3 and in second place in the NFC North. The Packers host the Bears on Sunday.
