A record number of players have pulled out of this year’s Pro Bowl, and now a coach has, too.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy will not coach the Pro Bowl. The team announced that doctors advised McCarthy not to travel to Hawaii because he has a stomach illness.
The Packers’ coaching staff will now be led by associate head coach winston Moss, who will handle head-coaching responsibilities for the rest of the week and at the game on Sunday night.
The other Pro Bowl team will be coached by Chiefs coach Andy Reid. The Pro Bowl rosters will be determined at tonight’s Pro Bowl draft, an event that many people will watch, not because anyone actually cares about the Pro Bowl, but because it’s related to the NFL and it’s on TV.
