The end of the Mike McCarthy era in Green Bay was not a pretty sight.
The Packers had been vastly underperforming, and eventually, something had to change. That change came when McCarthy was fired as head coach after 13 seasons with the team.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, McCarthy wants to head out west to reunite with friend and former front office executive of the Packers, John Schneider.
Schneider is currently the general manager of the Seahawks, and La Canfora believes that a McCarthy-Schneider reunion is not that far-fetched. Pete Carroll, the current HC of the Seahawks, is 67 years old, getting to an age where people expect he could retire at any point.
This would ultimately leave the door wide open for McCarthy to step in and take over. Many people close to McCarthy believe that this could be considered his "dream job", as he would move west to take control of a roster with some serious talent under the watchful eye of his friend in Schneider.
Mike McCarthy will be very judicious about where he coaches next. Could sit out 2019 if right situation does not emerge: https://t.co/zZoc5bC7zn— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) December 9, 2018
Should Carroll end up calling it a career soon, don't be surprised when McCarthy puts his hat in the ring to potentially land the job.
