Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is opting out of the Pro Bowl.
McCarthy had previously been tapped to coach one of the Pro Bowl rosters, before an unspecified stomach illness forced the Packers boss to decline when doctors advised him against traveling.
Packers associate head coach Winston Moss will coach in McCarthy's place, joining linebacker Julius Peppers, linebacker Clay Matthews, guard Josh Sitton and fullback John Kuhn in Hawaii.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also selected, but opted out as well with an injury.
The players will be divided up into teams via a Pro Bowl Draft conducted by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin currently set for Wednesday night.
