Packers fire head coach Mike McCarthy

GREEN BAY, Wisc. - Four wins on the season isn't going to cut it if you're the Green Bay Packers. It's a recipe for a coaching change.

The Green Bay Packers have done just that, firing head coach Mike McCarthy after losing to the Arizona Cardinals earlier on Sunday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will take over as interim head coach.

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

McCarthy was in his 13th season with Green Bay. He won a Super Bowl with the team over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
