Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy Agrees to New Multi-Year Deal

The move many Packer fans have been waiting for was finalized on Friday, when head coach Mike McCarthy signed a new multi-year deal. McCarthy's contract extension will make him one of the highest paid coaches in the league, a compliment of the teams Super Bowl success earlier in February.

According to general manager Ted Thompson, the team is glad a deal has finally been organized.

"We are very pleased to finalize this agreement with Mike," Thompson stated. "He’s a good football coach, a good leader, and a good man. I look forward to working with Mike into the future."

In response, McCarthy thanked the Packers staff for it's persistent attitude during a time of uncertainty throughout the NFL.

"I want to thank the Green Bay Packers, especially Mark Murphy and Ted Thompson, for the continued commitment and confidence they have shown in our program," McCarthy replied.

"We were very excited to bring the Lombardi Trophy back home this past season, and we look forward to the challenge of continuing to improve as a football team and adding to the championship legacy here. My family and I love being in Green Bay. It’s always going to be my home, and we are very happy to continue to be a part of this community."

What does McCarthy's deal include?

Fans will be happy to know that McCarthy's contract will see him through to the 2015 season, a deal which replicates Ted Thompson's deal earlier in the year.  It will also guarantee a pay check of $5 million a year, a rare sum of money that is only awarded to the leagues elite coaches.

Winning the Super Bowl has payed off for McCarthy, as the Packers continue to progress early this offseason.
