Packers general manager Ted Thompson has chosen San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McCarthy to be the team's new coach, with an official announcement likely later this week. The two sides must still negotiate a contract, but there aren't expected to be any major sticking points in those discussions.
Because for my money nothing like going after a coach known for being a QB genius, who surely helped Alex Smith get off to a good start.
