McCarthys have baby girl

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- It's a girl for Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and his wife, Jessica.

  The Packers issued a statement that said Gabrielle Kathleen was born early Wednesday morning.

  The baby girl conveniently arrived during the Packers' bye week.

  The McCarthys got married earlier this year, but the coach isn't a rookie when it comes to fatherhood.

  He maintains a close relationship with his teenage daughter from a previous marriage.

  But as McCarthy noted Monday, it has been a while since he's been called on to coach breathing and pushing instead of blocking and tackling.

  McCarthy said he would carry the bag and make sure there was gas in the car.
