Mike McCarthy is the head coach of the NFL's Green Bay Packers.
When Mike McCarthy was named head coach of the Green Bay Packers in January 2006, he said the goal for the franchise would be to win a Super Bowl, and that would never change.
In 2010, McCarthy led the Packers back to the pinnacle of the sport, joining Vince Lombardi and Mike Holmgren as the only coaches in team history to lead the Packers to a Super Bowl title, with a 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
The path to that world championship was not an easy one as McCarthy joined Pittsburgh's Bill Cowher (2005) as the only Super Bowl-winning coaches to lead their respective teams to three road victories as the No. 6 seed in the playoffs en route to a title.
Since taking over as head coach in '06, McCarthy has a 68-36 overall record (.654), including a 5-3 mark (.625) in the postseason. His regular-season winning percentage ranks third among current NFL head coaches (min. 50 games). The past three seasons under McCarthy marked one of the most successful stretches in team history as Green Bay posted a 40-14 record (.741), including the playoffs. The 40 victories from 2009-11 ranked No. 2 in the NFL behind only New Orleans (41), and were the most by the Packers over a three-year span since 1996-98 (42).
The Packers entered the 2011 season with high expectations and the goal of becoming the NFL's first repeat champion since 2003-04. While the team ultimately fell short of that goal, McCarthy led Green Bay to a franchise-best 15 regular-season wins, becoming just the sixth team in NFL history to reach that mark in the regular season. The Packers began the '11 campaign reeling off 13 consecutive wins, easily eclipsing the previous franchise record of 10-0 starts in 1929 and 1962.
Dating back to Week 16 of the 2010 season, and including the playoffs, Green Bay won 19 consecutive games before suffering its lone regular-season defeat at Kansas City in Week 15. Covering a span of 364 days, the 19-game winning streak was the longest in franchise history and was the second-longest winning streak in NFL history behind only the 2003-04 New England Patriots (21 games). Perhaps most impressively, the Packers never trailed in the fourth quarter during their streak.
The Packers' 2011 regular-season success culminated with their second NFC North title under McCarthy and first since 2007. Green Bay's 6-0 mark in the division marked the first time in team history that the Packers posted an undefeated record in their division since the NFL went to the divisional format in 1967. Green Bay also became the first team since the 1987 Chicago Bears to sweep the NFC North/Central.
With the Packers' playoff appearance in 2011, they became the only team in the NFC to qualify for the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. Additionally, Green Bay earned the NFC's No. 1 seed for the first time since 1996 and finished with a perfect 8-0 record at Lambeau Field for the first time since 2002.
McCarthy was runner-up in Coach of the Year voting by The Associated Press and saw seven of his players earn Pro Bowl nods following the 2011 campaign, the most the Packers had voted to the all-star game since 1967.
McCarthy guided the Packers to a 10-6 campaign in 2010, highlighted by seven wins in the final 10 games. What made the Packers' championship season even more impressive was the adversity the team faced due to injuries. Green Bay finished the year with 15 players on injured reserve, and eight of them had started at least one game during the season. Six starters from the opening-day depth chart sustained season-ending injuries in the first seven games.
The Packers became just the third 10-6 team in NFL history to win a Super Bowl, and their six losses on the season came by a combined 20 points. Green Bay never lost a game by more than four points, but even more impressive, it never trailed by more than seven points at any point in a game all season. The Packers became the first team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger to never trail by more than seven points at any point during the regular season, and became the first championship-winning franchise to do so since the 1942 Washington Redskins.
It was a shining example of the steady, consistent approach that McCarthy has taken in leading the Packers throughout his tenure, one that culminated with the organization's fourth Super Bowl title and 13th world championship in 2010.
