The Cleveland Browns might have found a break in their search for a new head coach. The Green Bay Packers fired head coach Mike McCarthy on Sunday.

The Packers were the second team to make a coaching change in season. The Browns were the first when they fired Hue Jackson at the end of October.

Jackson was replaced on an interim basis by Gregg Williams. Joe Philbin has replaced McCarthy for the rest of the season.

McCarthy and Browns general manager John Dorsey have ties together. Dorsey previously worked with the Packers.

Dorsey worked for the Packers from 1991 through 2012. He then was brought to Kansas City by Andy Reid, where he was the general manager from 2013 through 2016.

McCarthy has been the team’s head coach since the 2006 season. He went 126-77-2 as the team’s head coach during this time.

With Dorsey in the front office and McCarthy as head coach, the Packers went 63-33. They also won the Super Bowl following the 2010 season.

McCarthy only had one losing season with Dorsey in the front office. They went 6-10 in 2008.

There were also four 10-plus win seasons. He guided the team to a 13-3 season in 2007 and a 15-1 record in 2011.

Dorsey would like to find a head coach, who can help develop 2018 No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield. McCarthy helped develop Aaron Rodgers into a star.

He is one of the best quarterbacks in the league. The Browns hope that Mayfield will be the best quarterback in team history since the team came back in 1999.

McCarthy is not expected to be out of work for long. Because he is a head coach, he cannot be hired until the end of the season.

The Browns hired Dorsey towards the end of last season so the New York Giants and other teams could not hire him following the conclusion of the season. He needs to hire McCarthy immediately after the season to keep other teams from hiring him away.
