Packers chairman Bob Harlan said Friday negotiations between the team and McCarthy are progressing well but are not complete.
"The signed copy has not crossed my desk yet," Harlan said.
"Ted's handling it with Mike, and it's going very well," Harlan said. "It's just not finished."
McCarthy confirmed earlier this week that the two sides were making progress on a new deal, but didn't seem eager to talk about it for fear that it could create a distraction going into Sunday's game.
McCarthy has a year left on the original three-year deal he signed in January 2006, but NFL teams often try to lock up valued coaches before the final season of their contract -- especially when they lead the league's youngest team to a 13-3 regular-season record and a playoff victory, as McCarthy has done this season.
