DE PERE, Wis. (WMTV) -- In an exclusive interview with the NFL's Tom Pelissero, Mike McCarthy shared the "coaching clinic" he's been running out of his home, for plans of a return to the NFL in 2020.

McCarthy intends to be a head coach in the NFL again and has stayed up to date with the game, even with a year off, thanks to "The McCarthy Project". A collaboration with fellow coaches Jim Haslett, Frank Cignetti and Scott McCurley. That trio will essentially make up the main assistants of McCarthy's next coaching staff, where ever the job may take them.

As for McCarthy's family who has not lived anywhere besides Green Bay, "We need football right now, we don't need it forever but we need it right now." McCarthy shared with Pelissero.

McCarthy was the head coach for the Green Bay Packers from 2006 to 2018 and was fired following missing the playoffs in back-to-back seasons.
