BREAKING: Cowboys Hire Mike McCarthy As Their Next Head Coach

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms to make former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy their next head coach, according to reports from Jay Glazer and Ian Rapoport. The coaching search moved quickly in the past 12 hours after the Cowboys formally announced Jason Garrett would not return as head coach.

Cowboys rumors had suggested that Jerry Jones was going to waste no time hiring his replacement. Lincoln Riley, McCarthy and Urban Meyer have been a few of the names floated as potential replacements. However, not even one day in and it’s being reported that the team is done looking at possible coaching options. Tom Downey, host of the Cowboys Report, has the latest on the Cowboys latest news and rumors surrounding the Cowboys coaching search.

The Cowboys brought in both Marvin Lewis and McCarthy for interviews, but it seems like that’s going to be it. Could Lewis become McCarthy’s defensive coordinator?

Rumor has it that McCarthy’s interview went extremely well and he’s already inquiring about potential staff, specifically running backs coach candidates. Does Mike McCarthy think that it’s a done deal with the Cowboys? It’s certainly possible.

In other Cowboys coaching news, it appears that several Cowboys assistants are set to remain in Dallas. While it’s believed that Kellen Moore secured a job for next season, Marc Colombo and Sanjay Lal could also be staying. One report suggested that the next Cowboys head coach will have their OC, OL and WR coach already in place. If that’s the case, could the Cowboys be targeting a defensive-minded head coach?

  1. Well, it kind of makes sense. They want a guy who has Championship experience because this team is a "ready for a Championship now" team. Any college level coach will have an almost definite learning curve.

    * Won a SB
    * Multi Championship games
    * Loads of Playoff Appearances
    * Knows Aaron Rodgers, could be useful in Playoffs
    * Supposed beliefs in analytics
    *GB struggles might have been because of Rodgers and not him
    * Created a fairly successful run game with Ty Montgomery
    * Still an upgrade over Garrett
    * Can bring our offense to life

    * GB struggles might have been him.
    * Rumors about him towards the end of his career in GB are worrying
    * Dak and Rodgers are two very different players
    * Teams know how to beat him, and he may need an elite QB to bail him out at times

    Only time will tell how good of a hire this was. Hope this works out. It will be good to watch a game without all the clapping.

    Give this a B for now.

  2. Cowboys are mediocre at best when will Jerry Jones realize that? Defense has been a_s long before Garrett was there and Jerry keeps talking Superbowl but without the talent to get us there. When we was winning Superbowls we had both a potent offense and stellar defense right now we have neither.

  3. Who cares it's all a show anyway.
    Management, skill and talent is secondary, the nfl fefs are deciding every game more bs that keeps the
    nfl making money. All designed to take fans money.if you don't believe me check out the discounts on Dallas shop
    Lololo,l screw us when you win screw us when you lose
