Mike McCarthy picks up 100th win of head coaching career
With his team’s 27-20 triumph over the San Diego Chargers in Week 6, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy picked up the 100th regular-season win of his career. He is the 38th head coach in NFL history to reach the 100-win mark.
McCarthy reluctantly recognized the milestone. He downplayed his personal accomplishment and turned the attention back toward his surging squad.

McCarthy took over for Mike Sherman as head coach of the Packers before the 2006 season and has posted a record of 100-49-1 since then. He has guided Green Bay to six consecutive postseason appearances; his currently undefeated Packers are favorites to win the NFC North again in 2015.
Only a handful of active coaches have more career wins than McCarthy. They are Bill Belichick (216), Tom Coughlin (167), Jeff Fisher (164), Andy Reid (151), John Fox (121), Norv Turner (114) and Marvin Lewis (106).
