McCarthy, a high quality guy


Check out this article by Tom Silverstein. For a coach to hold off on negotiating a new contract when an offer to do so has been put forward by management is pure class. Some might argue that he is holding off on negotiating until the Pack runs deep into the playoffs, thereby increasing his value. And if this is his motivation, I’m not bothered by it because it demonstrates to me that he is then very confident about this team this year because there would also be a risk for him that the Pack doesn’t perform up to this year’s new expectations which could hurt his value. But I also think he just wants to focus on this season and not bring in any potential distractions. Every day, I grow more and more comfortable with the way McCarthy goes about things. While I still love Jim Bates, the pain of TT overlooking him lessens with each day. Coach of the year? McCarthy would have my vote.
