    Who Could Be The Next Head Coach After McCarthy?

    We all know that the hasn't been very solid for the the last two seasons. Lots of the blame has been targeted toward Head Coach Mike McCarthy for this lack of . If McCarthy were to be fired, who could replace him?

    This is speculation for a later day since came out and stated he is not interested in finding a new head coach at the moment. McCarthy is safe for now with Jerry Jones, but many fans think differently.

    One coach that was up for grabs this summer was Sean Payton, the former head coach. He was surrounded with speculation during this time as some thought he could be the new coach of the Cowboys despite still being under contract with NO. This however didn't happen, yet I wouldn't count out the possibility of his return to the game. Besides Sean Payton, who else would be a good fit as the Cowboys head coach?

    There are usually some coaches from college who would be willing to take the next step in their career and head to the NFL. One coach that comes to mind is Dabo Swinney. Dabo is the head coach of Clemson and has been since 2008. He has proven his ability to develop good players, including and Trevor Lawrence.

    Would Dabo be willing to leave there and would he be ready to take on the responsibility of in the NFL? Probably not, but money talks.

    However, maybe I'm looking too far, perhaps the coach the Cowboys need is right under our noses.

    Kellen Moore, the current for Dallas, is already in a position to take over as head coach. Moore has been with the Cowboys in that role for three seasons and has already learned much about the franchise. He is the most solid pick going forward as the next head coach.

    I'm sure other coaches could be better at the position and bring more to the table, but at the moment those are the top picks. Dabo is a long shot yet Jerry Jones has had some interesting choices in the past. For now, we will see how Mike McCarthy performs this year and if he has what it takes to take the Cowboys deep into the .

    Skinny is great in college. Doubts on NFL. We don’t need him. McCarthy needs to go and Moore has a hard time making adjustments. He’s not ready to be an NFL head coach.

    Jim

    No mention of Dan Quinn?

    Phil Schwartz

    No mention of Dan Quinn in this. He is respected and loved by the players and knows how to correct the outcome that happened in Atlanta. This I believe would be a decent choice. It may be also why he stuck around when offered a head coaching job this off-season.

    Dalton Ray Ellis

    Fans think the Cowboys should change head coaches every time the team goes 3 years without playing in the Super Bowl. They wanted to fire Landry throughout the 1960’s and again in the 1980’s (until Jerry actually did it). Do we really want to become the Browns?

    Who is available who is demonstrably better than McCarthy? Payton might be, but he’s only won one Superbowl, same as McCarthy. The only difference is that McCarthy is here and Payton isn’t. The grass being greener….

    Dalton R Ellis, Jr

    No living or past coach is good enough for Cowboy fans.

    VAM

    Both Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson were good enough, IMO.

    As far as next HC, it’s a little premature, b/c MM has only been there 2 years. HC merry-go-rounds are not a good thing for many reasons, IMO.

    As far as Dan Quinn, let’s not forget he was DC for the Falcons when they had the biggest defensive collapse in Super Bowl history, blowing a 25 POINT HALFTIME LEAD. Be careful what you wish for.

    Lawrence C. Baker

    Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson were more than good enough, they were great! But as President Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter said about her dad: He has to be the bride at every wedding, the baby at every christening, the body at every funeral. That describes Jerry Jones to a tee! Got to be the CENTER OF ATTENTION every day, all day.

    Longinus

    Technically, that was Richard Smith, not Dan Quinn – Quinn was the HC of the team and obviously had his imprint on the defense, but he was probably not the one calling the in-game defense (and an in-game defensive collapse probably falls much more on the DC). Keep in mind that comebacks start on defense (for the team needing to come back), so how the offense did things also factors in.

    I’m pretty sure that Cowboy fans at present would be happy to accept blowing a big deal in a Super Bowl 😉

    Jon

    Our problem is not the coach, it’s not the QB or any other player. Everything falls back on the OWNER of the team Jerry Jones who thinks he knows football. In my opinion the only person in the front office who knows football is Will McClay.

    Lawrence C. Baker

    I agree with you. Although, I think Dan Quinn is capable and competent as a Head Coach. This team has as much talent as any team in the league, but constantly fall short of achievable goals. Mike McCarthy has zero leadership ability! Aaron Rodgers carried his fat ass at Green Bay. That’s painfully evident now. The sooner McCarthy and Moore are moved on the sooner this team will improve. Lincoln Riley, Sean Payton, or Dan Quinn would be better choices. If the Cowboys hired Payton or Riley, you certainly wouldn’t need Kellen Moore.

    John Dixon

    I always find it funny that couch owners feel as if they not only know more than the owners and employees who actually run this team daily but feel they have the right to deem the owners as a problem. There is a reason you are sitting at home or work commenting instead of being involved in professional football in some way. Jerry Jones BTW has a long history of football and at least has played the game. Was pretty good at it too. He also earned his way into what he has and did bring 3 SB titles to the team. I think he has EARNED the right to do as he feels best for HIS team. Do I agree with him? Not often, but my opinion is as a fan and I probably know less than he or the coaches.

    John Horton

    I think Dan Quinn would be the best choice he learned about what it takes to win during his time in Atlanta he learned from his mistakes he has put together for us an outstanding defense and I think that he would be a great head coach for the cowboys he knows how to make adjustments on the fly and I think he could bring the cowboys to the super bowl multiple times

    Lawrence C. Baker

    Tony, you may not be saying that the Cowboys should fire McCarthy, but that’s exactly what’s needed. Kellen Moore is not the answer either. He couldn’t get hired last off season with multiple Head Coaching jobs available. Teams told him no thanks and rightfully so! He should’ve gone back to Boise State and earned his way back to the NFL. This guy is Jason Garrett all over again. Weak, stupid, and indecisive! Jerry and Stephen Jones better wake up to who they have leading this team to nowhere!!!

    Lawrence C. Baker

    Other good candidates for Cowboys HC would be Lincoln Riley, Ryan Day, Jim Harbaugh, and the current DC Dan Quinn. Would love to have Swan Payton, but he’s still under contractual obligation to New Orleans. Anyone of these guys would be much better than Kellen Moore. I still wonder if he’s sabotaging this offense to get McCarthy fired. Just like his backstabbing mentor Jason Garrett did to Wade Phillips.

    Lawrence C. Baker

    John Dixon don’t sell yourself and other fans short. The Jones Family NEVER EVEN SNIFFS a Super Bowl if not for the genius Jimmy Johnson. I personally don’t think Jerry and Stephen Jones knows so much more than us Couch Coaches. Since 1996, they’ve won the same amount of Lombardi Trophies as us Couch Coaches. Until one of those incompetent idiots get that done, they’re the same as us, except they have some money. Money don’t give you a higher IQ than the next guy!!!
