Head coach MIKE McCARTHY of the Green Bay Packers is the MOTOROLA NFL COACH OF THE WEEK for games played on November 11 - 12, the NFL announced Friday.

Mike McCarthy coached the Packers to their first whitewash since 2002 over the Minnesota Vikings who endured their first shut out since 1991 by a score of 34 - 0. Brett Favre passed for 351 yards and three touchdowns to help Green Bay gain 488 total yards. RB Ryan Grant ran for 119 yards and one touchdown as the Packers controlled the clock for 40:40. The Green Bay defense limited the NFC North rival Vikings to only 247 total net yards and 11 first downs.

McCarthy was selected as Motorola NFL Coach of the Week from among three finalists by voters on NFL.com. The other finalists were head coaches SCOTT LINEHAN of the St. Louis Rams and MIKE SHANAHAN of the Denver Broncos.

In January, voting will be held on NFL.com to determine the Motorola NFL Coach of the Year.

Motorola's brand has become synonymous with NFL coaches through the coaches' headsets worn during every NFL game. The NFL and Motorola recently unveiled newly designed Coaches Headsets that are lighter, thinner and more ergonomically advanced in comparison to their predecessors. Motorola believes NFL coaches are game-changing innovators whose creativity and expertise fuels the exciting brand of football enjoyed by millions of fans around the world.
