Packers coach Mike McCarthy thanks fans for sympathies

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Packers coach Mike McCarthy is thanking friends, fans and the NFL community for their condolences following the death of his brother last week.

McCarthy said in a statement Wednesday that that outpouring of support was overwhelming and appreciated.

Joseph McCarthy, 47, died on Jan. 21 in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

The McCarthy family is from western Pennsylvania. Mike McCarthy said his family has received sympathies from both the Pittsburgh and Green Bay communities.

The Packers coach has returned to Green Bay. He was scheduled to meet with reporters later Wednesday for a season-ending news conference that was postponed from last week.
