The Green Bay Packers have signed general manager Ted Thompson to a multiyear extension. Head coach Mike McCarthy might be next.
Packers President Mark Murphy last week said extending Thompson's and McCarthy's deals, which were to expire in 2012,was a priority following Sunday's 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
"This is a great organization and I am very humbled and appreciative," Thompson said in a statement released by the team. "Green Bay is a special place and I am honored to work with such a great group of people that have all contributed to our success."
Murphy on Friday said the organization is thrilled to keep Thompson, 58, after working on and reaching an agreement on a new contract in December.
Of Green Bay's 53 active players against Pittsburgh, 49 were acquired by Thompson, 26 through the draft.
