Mike McCarthy mixing it up in Packers camp


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Coach Mike McCarthy is roaming around the practice field a little more this year at Green Bay Packers minicamp.

The offensive-minded McCarthy relinquished play-calling duties this offseason to dedicate more time to working with the defense and special teams.

It was part of a series of changes that juggled assignments for some assistants, too.

McCarthy said Tuesday that one goal in the offseason is to get offensive and defensive coaches working more together. That gives each side of the ball a different perspective on getting tips and learning nuances of the game.

McCarthy is always looking to keep things fresh for his players. He said that he's still nailing down a new routine in what he calls his busiest offseason personally since arriving in Green Bay in 2006.
