McCarthy: Packers in 'grind' of short week

Green Bay Packers former head coach Mike McCarthy has not found a new team for the 2019 season, and he has told NFL.com reporter Tom Pelissero he will sit out next season.

McCarthy told Pelissero, “Family excited about dad at home for 2019. That’s all that matters as we both know.”

McCarthy was fired as the Packers’ head coach mid-way through the 2018 season. Earlier this week they announced Matt LaFleur was taking over as head coach.

It was rumored McCarthy was going to either the Cleveland Browns or the New York Jets.

Earlier in the day Wednesday, news broke that the Jets will hire former Dolphins coach Adam Gase.

After the New York job was filled, McCarthy decided to prepare for the 2020 season, he told Pelissero.
