The head coach of the Green Bay Packers will not fulfill his role as a head coach in this week's Pro Bowl due to illness.
A team spokesman said a stomach problem is causing him to not attend the Pro Bowl and related events.
The Packers' associate head coach, Winston Moss, will take over the role as head coach for the rest of the week.
McCarthy was slated to coach one of two Pro Bowl teams after his team's playoff loss to Arizona earlier this month.
