Bob McGinn of theMilwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Packers team president Mark Murphy has been working toward an extension with head coach Mike McCarthy.

No National Football League team can match the Packers for consecutive years of service in the jobs of general manager and coach. Nine years is an eternity in the fickle business of pro football, but Mark Murphy apparently wants to sustain Thompson-McCarthy for as long as he can.

Murphy, the team’s president, has been working on a contract extension for McCarthy during the off-season, according to sources.

McCarthy and Thompson each signed new five-year deals in spring 2011. McCarthy’s deal runs through the end of the 2015 season; Thompson’s would expire after the 2016 draft.

McCarthy has posted an 82-45-1 record with the Packers, won four division titles and taken the team to the playoffs six times overall.
