The Cowboys coach’s perplexed odyssey seems to be over.
On Monday, Fox Sports’s Jay Glazer said the Cowboys agreed to agree with Mike McCarthy to become the new coach in Dallas.
The show comes less than 24 hours after the Cowboys formally parted ways with Jason Garrett, who has been the Cowboys’ coach since 2011. Garrett was the interim coach for Dallas in 2010, taking over from Wade Phillips.
Garrett was relieved of his duties after a frustrating 8-8 season, when some believed the Cowboys had shot at the Super Bowl. They missed the chance to win the division in Week 17.
New Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy remained above Jerry Jones’ home on Saturday night, per source. “Once you stay at Jerry’s house, he does not lose his type,” the source said.

McCarthy, who sat out a year after entertaining jobs in the 2019 offseason, the Packers coach between 2005 and 2018, led to his dismissal during the 2018 season. McCarthy has a Super Bowl championship in his resume, winning the Super Bowl 45 against the Steelers, and his record is at 125-77-2, not including a 10-8 playoff record.
McCarthy’s ending with the Packers came amid reports that the relationship between coach and general Aaron Rogers had sung and detailed in a lengthy report from the Bleach Exhibition.
