Demovsky: Packers signed McCarthy to contract extension through 2019

There is nothing worse than a head coach going into the season on the final year of his contract. At least two other defensive assistants, inside linebackers coach Scott McCurley and defensive line Mike Trgovac, also were let go. The Packers already know they will need a new receivers coach. The offense is now being coordinated by Edgar Bennett, though receivers coach Luke Getsy fled to Mississippi State to be the school's offensive coordinator.

Thompson is expected to remain with the Packers in an advisory role, but the team will conduct a search for a new general manager.

Wilde reminds fans that the Packers gave former coach Mike Sherman an extension before he was sacked in 2005 by then newly hired GM Ted Thompson.

It's possible the Packers could extend McCarthy again or start over with a new deal once a general manager is hired.

If the Packers choose to promote from within, there are several potential candidates, including director of football operations Eliot Wolf, CEO Mark Murphy, vice president Russ Ball, director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, or senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith. Both Thompson and McCarthy nearly always had contracts that ran concurrently. Green Bay has accumulated a 125-82-1 record in the 13 seasons with him at the helm, including a Super Bowl title after the 2010 season.
