The coaching search in Dallas is over. Less than 24 hours after parting ways with Jason Garrett, the Dallas Cowboys and former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy have agreed to terms to make him the new head coach in Dallas, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
Scoopage alert: the @dallascowboys have agreed to terms with Mike McCarthy to be their new head coach. Announcement and press conference expected later this week @NFLonFOX #cowboys
McCarthy enjoyed quite a bit of success during his days in Green Bay. He compiled a 125-77-2 record in the regular season, 10-8 in the postseason during his 13 years with the Packers. The crowning achievement of his career came in 2010 when he led the Packers to victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, ironically, in AT&T Stadium, the home of the Cowboys. Now the new sheriff in Dallas, McCarthy will look to guide the Cowboys back to postseason success, something they haven’t experienced on a regular basis since the 90s. More details to come.
