Reports: McCarthy to give up play-calling duties

Mike McCarthy has been both head coach and offensive play-caller since he arrived in Green Bay, but that will reportedly no longer be the case.

Ian Rapoport of says McCarthy will turn over play-calling duties on offense to Tom Clements, who would also receive the title of Associate Head Coach. Receivers coach Edgar Bennett would then take Clements' old position of offensive coordinator.

Ten NFL head coaches called their own plays, either on offense or defense, last season. McCarthy has been criticized for conservative play-calling during the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss in Seattle.
