Packers players reaction regarding the firing of Mike McCarthy

"As a result, I made the hard decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately", Packers CEO and President Mark Murphy said in a statement.

Joe Philbin will take over in the interim.

Murphy said the process of hiring the next head coach would begin immediately.

The Packers were eliminated from the playoffs - even though they only had a 3 percent chance of qualifying heading into the game - with the 20-17 loss.

"His success, throughout his years here in Green Bay, he is a great coach".

A name that has been tied to the Cleveland Browns as a potential coaching candidate has officially become available as the Green Bay Packers fired Mike McCarthy on Sunday.

McCarthy had been the Green Bay head coach for the past 13 seasons.

Green Bay also had its longest kickoff return of the season on Sunday with running back Jamaal Williams bringing one back for 30 yards in the second quarter. It also wouldn't be surprising to see Dorsey lean towards someone he knows like McCarthy as he makes his first ever National Football League coach hire. Receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison have missed time with injuries. The same issues kept popping up for the offence, most glaringly, empty third downs and a lack of explosive plays. After being unable to get enough wins without Rodgers last season to stay in contention, McCarthy entered the year on the hot seat and never got off of it.

"Yeah, a lot probably".

"It was clearly a very disappointing loss, it was a game we needed to win", McCarthy said in his final press conference, before his firing was announced. When you have a losing season like we have, obviously all the blame is put on him, but all the blame shouldn't be put on him. We've had a number of opportunities.

Rodgers said his focus was getting his teammates to "play with that pride" and focus on the next four games.
