2012 Pro Bowl NFC Coaches: Packers Coach Mike McCarthy Shall Lead Them

A select number of the NFL's best players will be making a trip to Hawaii to participate in this Sunday's AFC-NFC Pro Bowl. However, it's not just the players who get rewarded for good seasons, some of the league's top coaches get the chance to be there as well.

For the NFC, the Green Bay Packers' coaching staff will have the honor of leading the conference's best players into battle. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy will also have head coach duties on Sunday.

McCarthy has been the head coach for Green Bay since 2006, compiling a 63-33 record. Last year, he led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2011-2012, the Packers' dynamic offense led them to a 15-1 regular season which ended in disappointing fashion, losing at home to the New York Giants in the Divisional Round.

Dom Capers will lead the defense while the offensive coordinator spot is a bit more fluid since Packers' OC Joe Philbin is now Miami Dolphins head coach.
