McCarthy says good­bye to Pack­ers play­ers

Ledger-Enquirer - - Sports -

Fired coach Mike McCarthy was wel­comed back to bid farewell to the Green Bay Pack­ers play­ers Wed­nes­day.

“Mike came by the of­fice, I think Tues­day we all saw him as a staff, which was great,” in­terim coach Joe Philbin said be­fore Thurs­day’s prac­tice.

“Then we talked, and he wanted an op­por­tu­nity to speak with the team. I was 100 per­cent, fully sup­port­ive of that, and he did a fan­tas­tic job talk­ing to the team. Not just about foot­ball and win­ning foot­ball games, but his pas­sion.”

McCarthy, who was in his 13th sea­son, was fired after Sun­day’s home loss to the Ari­zona Car­di­nals. The team’s fifth loss in six weeks sent the Pack­ers to 4-7-1 on the sea­son.
