McCarthy was hired as the Packers head coach by Ted Thompson in 2006.
McCarthy is under contract through the 2019 season, thanks to the one-year extension he received late last year. Philbin was the offense line coach for the Colts last season. Ex-Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio interviewed for the Bears' vacant head-coaching position Wednesday but could be available if the team hires someone else to replace John Fox.
Murphy, speaking at a news conference Tuesday, said that he meant to move "quickly" to replace longtime general manager Ted Thompson, who is transitioning to an emeritus position the team has termed "senior advisor to football operations".
Offensive line coach James Campen, the longest-tenured Packers assistant coach, also could be under consideration for the offensive coordinator job.
Green Bay was 4-1 when Rodgers was injured in a Week 6 clash with Minnesota and the team never recovered.
Packers president Mark Murphy said on Tuesday that McCarthy has the authority to fill the coordinator position without waiting for a new GM.

"This is a special place and we've had some success along the way, but it's the relationships that I value most", he said in a statement. That will fall clearly under what's best for the Green Bay Packers. During all five of his seasons as the offensive coordinator, the Packers would finish top 10 in points and yards.
Unlike his predecessor, Mike Sherman, who became coach and GM after Ron Wolf retired and before the jobs were separated again with the hiring of Thompson in 2005, McCarthy doesn't believe a dual role is feasible. That's what keeps me up at night is the personal changes that you make. Green Bay was fifth in overall defense in the Super Bowl-winning season in 2010. "We had a hell of a partnership for 12 years".
No matter what you think of McCarthy, the prospect of losing him and creating even more upheaval is something the Packers can't afford.
A defense plagued by injuries at cornerback had some moments trying to adjust to the loss of Rodgers on the other side of the ball.
We haven't seen such dramatic changes in Green Bay for some time. "We've going to evaluate every aspect of the football operations".
Needless to say, the Packers are not messing around.
