Mike McCarthy joined elite Green Bay Packers company on Wendnesday when the village board of Ashwuabenon unanimously voted to rename Potts Avenue (which is one block southeast of Lambeau Field) in his honor.

The new street is called "Mike McCarthy Way" to pay homage to the coach who has led the Packers to 88 wins, six playoff appearances and one Super Bowl victory during his eight seasons at the helm.

McCarthy joins the likes of Vince Lombardi, Brett Favre and Tony Canadeo as Packers greats who have been honored with having streets named after them.
