Steve Mariucci surprised by timing of Mike McCarthy's firing

Former NFL head coach Steve Mariucci said on the Rich Eisen Show that he was surprised that Mike McCarthy was fired with a quarter of the season remaining.

He elaborated by saying that it's almost unheard of to fire a coach who has won a Super Bowl with a team to be let go mid-season down the road. In fact, it's only the second time it's ever happened.

Mariucci also speculated on what type of head coach could work best with quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
