The Green Bay Packers have announced a multi-year extension for head coach Mike McCarthy.
McCarthy’s 93 victories rank third in team history behind Vince Lombardi (98) and Curly Lambeau (212). He has made the playoffs in six of his eight and a half seasons as head coach, including four division titles, two NFC Championship game appearances and one Super Bowl championship.
“We are very happy to extend our relationship with Mike,” General Manager Ted Thompson said in a statement. “Over the past nine years, he’s provided great stability and consistency to the Packers organization and our community as an excellent coach and leader. He’s a good man and we look forward to the future with Mike as our head coach.”
McCarthy will look to lead the Packers to their fourth consecutive NFC North title, as they currently sit at 5-3 and one game behind the Detroit Lions. Then he will look to improve upon his 1-3 playoff record since winning Super Bowl XLV. Thompson recently signed a contract extension that will go through 2018, so it would make sense that McCarthy’s deal will do the same.
