Mick McCarthy (r) was fired by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers have fired Mike McCarthy, their head coach since 2006.

McCarthy led the Pack to Super Bowl 45 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers but the side have struggled this season.

They currently have a 4-7-1 record and are third in the NFC North.

President and chief executive officer Mark Murphy said: “The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers.

“As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately.

“Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field.”
