The Green Bay Packers have enjoyed the luxury of not having a losing season since 2008, and they were able to win a Super Bowl in the 2010 season.
Although quarterback Aaron Rodgers is widely viewed as the most responsible for the Packers’ success since the Brett Favre era ended, head coach Mike McCarthy has also played a role in the Packers being a perennial Super Bowl contender.
The Packers organization agreed with this and gave McCarthy a multi-year contract extension. General manager Ted Thompson had recently received a long-term extension as well.
This may enable Rodgers to finish his career in Green Bay with McCarthy as his coach for his entire career, which will enhance their status as one of the best quarterback-coach combos in the NFL.
Here is a tweet from NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport announcing the Packers’ latest move.
