GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Time for Joe Philbin to assume an important new responsibility with the Green Bay Packers, and it’s not just the duties that come with taking over as interim head coach.

McCarthy’s connections to Browns could lead to Cleveland job

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Mike McCarthy’s connections with the Browns could land him his next job. Dumped by Green Bay on Sunday after 13 seasons, a Super Bowl win and amid a seemingly growing rift with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, McCarthy’s candidacy to become Cleveland’s next coach has gotten more legitimate.
