A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Monday, December 3.
Going into Sunday’s game, it seemed unlikely McCarthy would remain the head coach following the season. But after the embarrassing defeat to the Arizona Cardinals, it looked like the team had given up and Mark Murphy made a decision to make a change now.
It’s going to be an interesting offseason in Green Bay. Who will be the next head coach? What will general manager Brian Gutekunst do to strengthen the roster? It’s likely he’ll have a high draft pick to work with, and Green Bay will also have an additional Day 1 selection from the New Orleans Saints.
The Mike McCarthy news is the focus of the Packers News Report today. Here’s a roundup of the latest articles from around the internet.
