Aaron Rodgers opens up about relationship with Mike McCarthy

Aaron Rodgers

There have been numerous reports that Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy were not on the same page prior to the head coach being fired by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but Rodgers insists the relationship between the two was — and still is — in a good place.

While speaking with reporters on Monday, Rodgers described McCarthy’s dismissal as “tough” and spoke about how the two have established a close friendship off the field. The quarterback also admitted he was frustrated by some of the reports about him and McCarthy clashing.

Rodgers said he had not yet reached out to McCarthy as of Monday afternoon, but he planned later in the day.

Even if his personal relationship with McCarthy is still on solid ground, Rodgers has been openly critical of Green Bay’s offensive approach on multiple occasions this season. He also seemed irritated with one of the changes that was made to the Packers’ coaching staff over the offseason. Between those remarks and the rumblings that he and McCarthy weren’t agreeing on playcalling, it’s hard to believe Rodgers won’t welcome the latest change from a football perspective.
