    Looking for details. His season end presser was cancelled for personal reasons... guess that explains that. Sincerest condolences to the Coach.

    Per the JSOnline, his younger brother, Joe McCarthy III, collapsed while playing racquetball and was not successfully revived. Joe McCarthy was 47.

    Dang, 47. That's so young. I hope McCarthy and his family are doing OK. Kind of puts a perspective on things.

    Kind of puts my meaningless unhappiness and irritation with the Packers football in perspective. That is just terrible news.

    Coach McCarthy did not meet with the media as scheduled on Wednesday due to the passing of his younger brother.

    Very Sad news. Prayers go out to Coach McCarthy and his family.

    Thoughts and prayers to Mike and his family. Feel awful for the week that Mike is going through. The loss probably pus the game in perspective for him.

    Meaningless? No. Perspective? Yes.

    The sudden passing of such a young man is quite a shock, having been there myself. Best wishes and condolences to Coach.
