Packers fire head coach Mike McCarthy
GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy after 13 seasons in the wake of the team's 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

"The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers," said team CEO Mark Murphy in a statement. "As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately."

Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin has been promoted to interim head coach.

McCarthy went 125-77-2 in his time as head coach of the Packers, including a Super Bowl championship in 2010.

"We want to thank Mike, his wife, Jessica, and the rest of the McCarthy family for all that they have done for the Packers and the Green Bay and Wisconsin communities," Murphy said. "We will immediately begin the process of selecting the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers."

Green Bay is 4-7-1 and has lost five of its last six games.
