Gettin' paid!

Green Bay Packers coach [intlink id=”67″ type=”category”]Mike McCarthy[/intlink] formally signed the contract extension we all knew he was getting, last week.

Initially, the deal was said to be worth $5 million per season, which would have put McCarthy behind [intlink id=”13″ type=”category”]Chicago Bears[/intlink] coach [intlink id=”296″ type=”category”]Lovie Smith[/intlink] as the second-highest paid coach in the NFC North. That number is a little off, apparently.

Dan Pompei reports McCarthy’s deal is worth $32.25 million over five years, which is an average of $6.45 million per season. The number rightfully makes McCarthy the highest-paid coach in the division.

The deal also puts McCarthy in the neighborhood of New England Patriots coach Bill Belicheck, who makes around $7 million per season as the NFL’s highest-paid coach.

    too much money. I personally think the talent on the team carried him last season. he isn’t a bad coach cause he did make alot of very good game plans, but I feel he is not worth that much because of his down right horrendous time management skills.

    He scored pretty big this year. Also had a day during Mardi Gras named after him. That day being Tuesday.

    I’d say worth every penny. And i hope it holds true is statement about this being his last job. His bluntness amuses me. It also feels good knowing that we won’t be after a new head coach every 2 years like some teams. Stability is good. It’s the TT and MM partnership that spell success.
