The Green Bay Packers are working on head coach Mike McCarthy's contract extension, per The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel .

The Green Bay Packers are working on head coach Mike McCarthy's contract extension. 

Bob McGinn of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports on May 3 that this is on Packers team president Mark Murphy's itinerary during the current offseason: 

"A few days from now Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy will sit in adjoining seats at the close of their ninth draft together for the Green Bay Packers. 

"No National Football League team can match the Packers for consecutive years of service in the jobs of general manager and coach. Nine years is an eternity in the fickle business of pro football, but Mark Murphy apparently wants to sustain Thompson-McCarthy for as long as he can.

"Murphy, the team's president, has been working on a contract extension for McCarthy during the offseason, according to sources. 

"McCarthy and Thompson each signed new five-year deals in spring 2011. McCarthy's deal runs through the end of the 2015 season; Thompson's would expire after the 2016 draft. 

"Neither man was hired by Murphy, who replaced Bob Harlan six-and-a-half years ago. But from all outward appearances he is pleased with their individual performance and harmonious working relationship. 

"The assumption is that Murphy wouldn't have entered negotiations with McCarthy without having some assurances Thompson plans to work beyond the final two years of his contract. 

"Otherwise, it would make little or no sense for Murphy to re-do McCarthy with two years remaining on his deal and potentially undermine the organization's effective delineation of authority when it comes time for the next GM. 

"Frankly, it's unclear where the Packers are intending to go with the McCarthy negotiation." 

The 50-year-old McCarthy first served as Packers head coach in 2006 under a three-year deal that paid him $2 million annually, per McGinn. 

After guiding Green Bay to the 2007 NFC Championship Game, McCarthy then inked a new five- year deal that upped his annual average income to $4 million. 

Three years later, McCarthy switched to former NFL defensive end Trace Armstrong as his new agent. The Packers head coach still had two years left on the five-year deal he signed in 2008, but Murphy decided to McCarthy a fresh five-year deal that averaged $6.5 million per year, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel update. 

The deal would make McCarthy one of the NFL's top 10 paid coaches as his $6.5 million annual income is comparable to the likes of the New York Giant's Tom Coughlin, the St. Louis Rams' Jeff Fisher, the Baltimore Ravens' John Harbaugh and the Kansas City Chiefs' Andy Reid, per McGinn. 

The New England Patriots' Bill Belichick, who earns $11.5 million yearly, is the league's highest-paid coach. 

In spite of a new deal reportedly in the works, McCarthy's new contract "was met by some grumbling within the team's board of directors," per McGinn, who cites a team source. 

 

McGinn notes a bigger issue at hand is if the Packers will be able to lure a new GM into the fold should Thompson decide to resign should McCarthy be given a new four- or five-year contract. 

McCarthy has amasssed an 82-45-1 regular-season and 6-5 postseason record in his eight years as Packers head coach, per The SportsXchange. 

He guided Green Bay to a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Boxl XLV on Feb. 6, 2011.
