An Excerpt from Mike McCarthy’s Next Press Conference
Mike McCarthy: With that, I’ll take your questions.
Packers senior press reporter: The current Packers leadership across the board has become less transparent with each passing year. It’s something we in this room seek to change. Before I ask the question, you should know that virtually every reporter here has agreed to walk out unless you agree to provide a full and honest answer — and then do so. Our question is: When precisely was your contract extended during the 2017 season, how much is your salary to be in 2018 and 2019, how much more or less is that than your previous annual salary, who do you understand was involved in making or approving the decision, did you yourself request this extension, what reasons were given for it and by whom, and do you feel that being rewarded in this manner in the midst of the team’s worst season in the last nine years is a smart move and will make you a better coach?
