McCarthy: 'I trust Joe Philbin with my children'

Nov. 6, 2013
 

Packers coach Mike McCarthy was reluctant to talk about the controversial situation in the Miami Dolphins locker room involving offensive linemen Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito.

“I really don’t have an opinion on what’s going on in Miami,” said McCarthy. “But I trust Joe Philbin with my children. That’s the highest compliment I can give another man.”

Philbin served as McCarthy’s offensive coordinator in Green Bay before taking the Dolphins head coaching job in 2012. Philbin is attempting to put out a fire that is raging in the Dolphins’ locker room in the aftermath of bullying charges made by Martin against Incognito.

McCarthy was asked what a head coach can do to prevent players from crossing a line and getting out of hand. His reply:

“To me that’s all part about continuing education and unfortunately it’s something that’s happened. It obviously looks poor in the public eye but I just know here in Green Bay we talk a lot about being good teammate and things like that but there’s things that happen in the locker room that usually stay in the locker room. It’s no different than the coaches’ locker room or coaches’ office, so this is a challenging profession.

“On a personal note you never want to see anybody go through that, player or coach, and I’m sure they’re doing everything they possibly can to make it right.”
