Mike McCarthy's New Deal
The Packers Head Coach Talks Contract For First Time
Mike McCarthy's new contract extension through the 2015 season puts him among the NFL's highest paid coaches, around $5.5 million per season.
But in his words, he's nearly a pushover when it comes to negotiations.
"I think I was probably an easy person to negotiate with because the organization knows I want to be there, and they're very happy with the program that Ted and I built. And it was a mutual understanding and mutual outlook on getting the contract done."
McCarthy hints that Green Bay will be home for a long time, maybe forever since his wife is from there. And it's where he says, he wants to go after his second Lombardi trophy.
