Nevertheless, this was the right time for the move. The tenure had run its course.

"I mean, I’ve never been in this spot," McCarthy said, according to Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper. "I'm not going to act like I know what the hell I’m going to do tomorrow when they get in here. So, we’re going to do what we always do, we’re going to represent the Packers the right way, I know that. Other than that, we’ll focus on what’s in front of us."

The 55-year-old began his tenure as Packers head coach in 2006, posting a cumulative 125-77-2 record and winning the Super Bowl in 2010.

McCarthy was the second-longest tenured head coach in Packers history, behind only Hall of Famer Curly Lambeau (1921-1949).

Green Bay has slumped to a 4-7-1 record this season and is in serious danger of missing the playoffs for the second consecutive campaign.
