Cowboys hire Mike McCarthy as next head coach

It took the Cowboys forever to fire a coach.

It took them no time at all to hire one.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with former Packers boss Mike McCarthy to be their next head coach.

The news comes less than 12 hours after they announced they finally parted ways with former coach Jason Garrett, though his removal had become obvious and inevitable for some time.

McCarthy was 125-77-2 in 13 years with the Packers, and won a Super Bowl. His addition should allow Jerry Jones to keep some existing staffers, while satisfying his preference for NFL experience.

McCarthy had also interviewed with the Panthers, Browns, and Giants.

  1. Congrats to Mike McCarthy. I do wish him well in Dallas.

    Mike had said his family “needs football right now.” I felt his pain in that statement and I am glad he is going to be back doing what he loves.

  2. Well, this was a lazy coaching search. MEH!
    Marvin Lewis = Rooney Rule interview. Let’s stop the charade.

  3. So much for the Zimmer to the Cowboys rumor…

    Wish McCarthy the best of luck in Dallas, except when he plays the Vikings.

  4. McCarthy should have better luck working in Dallas without princess Rodgers calling the shots. Although working under Jerry will have its cons I’m sure. Good hire for the Cowboys IMO.

  5. Ha!

    No need to draft a TE, McCarthy doesn’t use them.
    Zeke? McCarthy wont use him either!

    MCCarthy doesn’t scheme at all. He, 100% expects to simply beat you on talent. His press conferences will be full of talk about pad level, fundamentals and 1 on 1 match ups. That’s how he expects to win. Not scheme to get Cooper open but that Cooper will, on his own, simply be open 100% of plays, regardless of Defensive alignment.

  6. Will McCarthy be allowed to use the analytics he’s been studying this past year? We all know the Cowboys don’t believe in that.

  7. I am rooting for this guy to apply his triumphs and mistakes as he navigates a talented team and a bombastic owner in Dallas. He has a daunting task ahead of him.

  8. Seems like a reasonable hire for a team that thinks they have the requisite talent to win right now. I’ll bet, though, that Cowboys fans might have wanted a more imaginative hire. I thought for sure McCarthy would end up with the Browns, they could really use the authority of a coach with a Superbowl win to clean that place up. I wonder what happens to Kris Richard and Kellen Moore now?

  9. Meh! As a Cowboy’s fan, not really impressed with the hire. He was fired from GB for not being innovative on offense. Why didn’t the Cowboys at least interview Riley, Ruhle. They interviewed Lewis, McCarthy, and a phone interview with Fisher, and that’s it.

  10. Dallas hires GreenBay’s fired trash. I would expect nothing less from idiot Jerry Jones. I am already looking forward to next year when Cowboys play at Vikings and get another epic beat down.
    Thanks Jerry, you just made next years trip to the top easier for us.

    Vikings fan.

  11. I am surprised that McCarthy said yes, I don’t think he would be a Jones yes man type. Maybe Jerry is changing his ways, but I don’t believe that is remotely in his nature.

  12. You just know ESPN and all the NFL blogs are really bummed about this. They wanted at least a week to pontificate about all the ins and outs and who knows the most and why their opinion is best and all the usual nonsense. Oh well, too bad.

  13. Curious what this means for the boy wonder Moore, like the hire, hopefully they allow him to actually run the ship instead of merely steering it

    =============

    McCarthy was running around begging for a job. He would have agreed to sweep the floor. Maybe he did.

  16. America is the real winner here as McCarthy is great at having elite talent and figuring out ways to lose big games, and America is a happier place when the Cowboys are losing 😛

    How many 80 year olds do you know who make large changes in how they approach things in life?

  18. No matter who was hired there would be complaining!

    Can he Coach? SURE!

    Is he a proven winning Coach? SURE!

    Will he win in Dallas? R.E.L.A.X!!!!

    Let it play out and we will all watch it all unfold!

  19. Mike McCarthy has taken a year to re-invent himself. Jerry Jones appears to me self evaluating. The Cowboys have a ton of talent. This could be really interesting. And it can go either way.

  20. Many of the Packer fans will come on here and say he was a horrible coach. That is nonsense!! His message may have got stale after so long, but he was a good coach with mediocre talent and a qb who did what he wanted. If Jones stays the heck out of the way and listens to him, Unfortunately ( cause I hate Dallas) they will be winning in no time.

  21. packers fans scoff but McCarthy won a SB, went 15-1. If it weren’t for rodgers changing his play calls who knows how many they could’ve won. The Cowboys just won the east with this move.

  22. I’m a GB fan and I do not like the Cowboys.

    BUT, here’s hoping that if MM is the Cowboys’ coach the next time Dallas plays GB and Rodgers is the GB quarterback, that the Boys annihilate Rodgers.

  23. So McCarthy turned Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers into HOFers from backup QBs?
    HCs with HOF QBs look very good.
    HCs with bad QBs look dumb.

    I predict 8-8 in 2020, and 2021.

  24. Good Luck Mike! Exceelent choice by Dallas. he is a solid football mind and will make this team a better organization as a whole.

  25. The timing is suspicious! So they basically left Garrett twisting in the wind for days and wasting his time coming back multiple days to “discuss” his job when they were negotiating with Mccarthy. That’s a bad way to treat someone that was apart of the organization for so long. They should have been honest and just told Garrett he wasn’t going to be brought back (right after the season ended).

    Also, how did the Cowboys comply with the Rooney rule? Just seems that Jones acted very sneaky when it wasn’t necessary.

  26. No job is perfect. In GB he had philosophical difference with the GM and a power struggle with his QB. Now in Dallas he will get a year of leeway then full on Jerry Jones meddling. I think he balanced that situation in GB well enough to get a pretty long run in Dallas. If he gets 10 years in Dallas he can probably retire and walk away. The Cowboys have a lot of talent and a good QB so I think he will make Dallas instantly better.

  27. In a dark corner, all that can be seen is the cherry of a cigarette and all that can be heard is clapping as Jason Garrett emerges from the shadow of Jerry Jones ready to begin his actual coaching career.

  28. Man the Cleveland browns really suck! Dis was your guy. C’mon you had all dis time to hire him before the cowboys even fired there coach. Imo he would have bn perfect for baker and the type of personnel on offense.

  29. They hired an O-coordinator that clearly 100% made his name by completely relying on the ad-lib ability of Rodgers and Farve to overcome his inept ability to call plays. No to mention he is pretty clueless about defense. Jerry got his desperate retread puppet that had no ability to adapt and change who was fired mid-season because of his failure. Seems a lot like what Garret did. The other issue why pay Zeke all that money and then hire a coach that really doesn’t really like the run game.

  30. I’ve never been a Cowboys fan, a hater. Oh yes! Guilty! But, I like McCarthy and he’d set for success in Dallas. ~sigh~ Well, maybe Rivera can lift the Redskins back into contention or whomever the Giants get hired can at least compete.

    But…but…according to McCarthy himself,he is a “highly successful NFL head coach.”

  32. 13 years with 2 1st ballot Hall of Fame quarterbacks. Absolutely loaded offenses until 2016. 1 SB appearance. Terrible in game coach. Offense didn’t change one bit in all those years. Good luck Dallas – you’ll need it.

    ================================================================================
    They interviewed Marvin Lewis

  35. What are Jerry and Cowboy fans going to do when they all realize their losing has
    nothing to do with the coach. Vince Lombardi couldn’t get those spoiled babies to win games.

  36. This is a really good hire. Jason Garrett could not get the Cowboys to the playoffs consistently enough. Say what you want about McCarthy, but he delivers playoff seasons. He had a streak of 8 straight trips to the playoffs in Green Bay. Are they going to be world-beating 14-2 seasons? No. But will he drastically increases the amount of shots the Cowboys will have to take a title home? Absolutely.

  37. A lot of hot air coming out of Dallas and now this. The Cowboys under Jerry Jones
    leadership are all about much to do about nothing. Look for the annual ” We are SB
    contenders again this coming off season ” from Jerry.

  38. If McCarthy is allowed to bring in his own assistants, or is forced to use Garrett’s (Jerry’s) leftovers; will tell you everything you need to know regarding his place on the totem pole, and weather you should expect any different results on the field or not.

    Nobody waste decent QBs like Mike.

    ________________________

    To be fair,he had to deal with Rodger’s gigantic ego and whining,so there’s that. Prescott will be a breath of fresh air to him. It’s the Jerry Jones factor that will screw it up.

  40. Granted it was with Rodgers at QB, but this guy at least does have a Super Bowl win on his resume. Closest the clapper ever got to a Superbowl was sitting in front of his Vizio….

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Uh, they kept telling Garrett they were moving on. According to reputable source, Garrett was begging to keep his job! Regarding the Rooney rule, they interviewed Marvin Lewis, before they did McCarthy.

  42. Unless Dak turns out to have an ego like Aaron Rodgers this should work well. They at least win the division next year. We’ll see at the halfway point wether they will be a SB contender.

  43. Given the stories that followed him out of GB, I would have looked a little longer. But maybe his firing brought him down to earth. Interested to see his staff hires. Good luck to all.

  44. couple things…
    Is McCarthy picking his own coaching staff, or is Jerruh trying to force coaches onto McCarthy? That’ll be telling quickly.

    Who’s the QB next season? Assume McCarthy had to have some input there in getting hired.

    Is Cooper coming back/getting giant new contract? Or punting Coop, and letting Gallup be #1/bring back Cobb/draft more.

  45. McMarthy walks into a great opportunity here. As a rabid Cowboys fan and even more rabid Jerrah hater, I’m desperately hoping Mike can weather the meddling and turn around our 25 years of frustration!!

  46. I found this list of coaches fired midseason from 2000 to 2012. You can be the judge about whether they worked out in their next stops.

    Coaches Replaced Midseason 2000-2012: Norv Turner, Bobby Ross, Vince Tobin, Bruce Coslet, Dennis Green, Dan Reeves, D. Wannstedt, Butch Davis, Mike Martz, Steve Mariucci, Bobby Petrino, Lane Kiffin, Mike Nolan, Dick Jauron, Brad Childress, Wade Phillips, J. McDaniels, M. Singletary, Jack Del Rio, Tony Sparano, Todd Haley.

    McCarthy might be a different animal, however. None of the guys on the list above were Super Bowl winners or had a .620 win percentage.

  47. just one SB with Rodgers in how many years? They should have won more trophies IMO.

    I hope he gets it done, and Jerry lets him do his job.

  48. how are these two not the same guy? Tons of talented players that somehow never quite lead the team to the results they should?

    Cowboys need to get used to “checking pad level” and “next man up”….which means, “the back-up player isn’t as talented, but we simply won’t adjust our scheme to deal with it…”

    Odd. Didn’t McCarthy have problems with the GM and QB in Green Bay? Doesn’t seem as the type of coach that would do whatever Jerrah says.
    ———

    If I were a coach and my GM kept handing the absolute dreck of a roster that he was supposed to win with in Green Bay, I’d have problems with him too.

    For god’s sake, he was forced to start (and expected to win with) a wide receiver at running back. For more than one season.

    Super Bowl winning coaches don’t grow on trees. This is a good hire.

  50. After the collapse against the Seahawks in the 2015 NFC Championship game after leading 19-7 with 3 minutes left, I wouldn’t hire him to coach a pee wee league game. Worst coached game in history!

  51. McCarthy better give a big shout out to Peter King at his press conference, that’s all I got to say about THAT.

  52. Here is what really happened.

    The Jerruh was interviewing people prior to sending the Clapper packing to save Jerruh face. Instead of having it reported that people turned him down, Jerruh already had McCarthy nailed down at least to a verbal agreement. Only once that happened the Clapper was clapped out of Clappsville, Texas.

    While I would not say that McCarthy is a great coach, he is an upgrade. I’m not sure how the Dallas Cupcakes will do without having a constant clap for their underachieving efforts.

    Poor, McCarthy. Going from Ewwin Wawgers to Dakota will be a definite shock. One had talent and could steal free plays; the other can’t figure out if he’s a running back or a passer without much leadership talent.

  53. Vikings win, Zimmer deal is off the table. Cowboys hire McCarthy. I truly believe that Jones would have offered a trade for Zimmer.

  54. Many of the Packer fans will come on here and say he was a horrible coach. That is nonsense!! His message may have got stale after so long, but he was a good coach with mediocre talent and a qb who did what he wanted. If Jones stays the heck out of the way and listens to him, Unfortunately ( cause I hate Dallas) they will be winning in no time.
    =====

    He’s a good head coach. As long as a Championship isn’t hanging in the balance.

    Cowboys fan will be left wanting.

  55. I think the Cowboys in time will learn that Rodgers in his prime made McCarthy a winning coach. And that he’s not necessarily a winning coach without a star QB.

  56. Mike always gave vets off for OTAs.

    Why?

    Because his offense never changed and they knew it already.

    Lafleur comes in with LESS offensive talent and wins as many games in 1 year as Mike did in 2 combined. A real running game that was there for McC but he never used. There were games Jones was averaging almost 7 ypc and Mike wouldn’t give it to him. Aaron didnt change the play, Mike never even out RBs on the field.

    Rb averages 6.2 ypc and its 3rd and 2 – expect an empty backfield from McCarthy.

  57. HATE HATE HATE this hire. Has a SB winning coach ever won another with a second team? That’s the exact point Jerry made last time he did a coaching search. McCarthy is a retread who could have stayed home on Sunday and still won with Rodgers and Favre. He didn’t recognize the value of Tayson Hill which is why he’s making big plays for the Saints now. But my favorite MM anecdote is how he had a low-level Lambeau Field worker fired for daring to offer him encouraging words as he walked by. The guy was 6 months from retirement. Jerry will die w/o sniffing another SB.

  58. Vikings win, Zimmer deal is off the table. Cowboys hire McCarthy. I truly believe that Jones would have offered a trade for Zimmer.

    He still could have.. what difference does a week or two make??

  62. I don’t know if he’ll be any better than Garrett, but then, he couldn’t be much worse either

  63. Cowboys hiring McCarthy to replace Garrett isn’t gonna move the needle much. I think the Cowboys are hoping for an Andy Reid to KC kinda scenario, but while McCarthy may resemble Reid, he’s not as good a coach.

    McCarthy is also an offensive coach, and the Cowboys need more help on defense.

  64. There has never been a coach to win a SB on two different teams. The Cowboys are ready to win now so I don’t get the hire.

  66. “McCarthy was running around begging for a job. He would have agreed to sweep the floor. Maybe he did.”

    Seriously … you don’t invite yourself to NFL Head Coaching interviews, you GET invited. I’m not sure he’s the best option for Dallas but there was clearly a lot of interest out there about him.

  67. The McCarthy hate on here is ridiculous. Who exactly did you think they were going to get?

    Bill Belichick ain’t walking through that door.

    An unproven NFL assistant? Crap shoot at best.

    A college coach? Over 75% of coaches coming directly from college (7 out of 9 over the last 20 years) have had losing records. 8 out of 9 failed to win a playoff game.

    I think it’s pretty funny that people think that for some reason a team that hasn’t been to an NFC Title game in 25 years somehow deserves a better coach than one with a Super Bowl ring.

  68. sure glad the Browns didn’t hire a guy with HC experience and a great resume…never ending saga….so bummed

  69. What the Cowboys need is a coach who will
    stand up to JJ and tell him no. No on your
    stupid draft choices, no to your play
    suggestions, no to your picking assistants.
    Why didn’t the Cowboys choose, Rhuel,
    Urban, any of the top notch candidates?
    Would any of those coaches agree to
    wearing the Jones family handcuffs?

    What the Joneses wanted was a caretaker
    coach who would translate Jerry’s wishes
    to the team. Jason Garrett II. Jones
    wanted more of the same and that’s
    what they got, Mike McCartthy, more of
    the same. Nobody who will challenge
    JJ’s authority, nobody who will push back
    against Jones’ interference. Another 500
    coach for a 500 owner and 500 team.

    Jerry’s comfortable with 500 ball.

  70. Really? Letting Jason Garret go for this clown? Big Mistake. McCarthy was a running punchline in Green Bay. A true clown show. I wonder what the talent he had in Green Bay could have done with a better coach?

    Jason Garret will be a good catch for someone. He has to be breathing a sigh of relief after getting away from Jerry’s clutches.

  71. Wow McCarthy must be doing something right. First, he coaches the Green Bay Packers. Then coaches the Dallas Cowboys. That’s pretty much fantasy land for most football fans. Or at least for us old guys who grew up during the glory years. Good luck coach!

  72. Dude had Favre and Aaron Rogers for his whole Head Coaching Career so lets see what he does without them.

  73. He wont e there long .Pack fans dont miss him. The guy kind of lazy when it comes to practice. His Offense didnt practice running pass routes but just having receivers to to an area and get open. Ya that worked.
    Considering who he had as QB all those years, and he won two super bowls and lost two thats it. Dallas fans will be cussing his name at the end of next season

  74. From fans driven organisation to a team with an alpha owner. We’ll soon get to watch an old man crying, and it won’t be Jerry.

  75. As a long time Packers fan, I appreciate what Mike McCarthy did for the Packers in his time there. However, I was one who also thought he should have been fired long before he was gone.
    The question is — has McCarthy learned anything which will bring him into the 21st century of coaching? Can he be a better game day coach than he was with the Packers? Will he focus all his attention on the Cowboys offense and ignore their defense and special teams as he did in Green Bay?
    But the most important question is will he be able to deal with Jerruh Jones’ meddling and need for attention?
    The good news is, McCarthy has a good roster to work with and the division he will be in stinks. So he should be able to keep the Cowboys competitive with no problem.
    But — and this is the most important question for Cowboys fans — is he the right guy to lead that team for the long term?
    If McCarthy thought it was tough dealing with Aaron Rodgers — wait til he deals with all he’ll deal with in Dallas. One thing I know — Bill Parcells couldn’t get it done in Dallas under Jerruh Jones — and McCarthy is no Bill Parcells.

  76. Big mistake by McCarthy. Huge. Having Jones as your owner and GM is an unwinnable situation. Just another rich guy who thinks he knows everything. When I saw Jones on TV after the loss he looked like he had one foot in the grave so maybe McCarthy won’t have to put up with his garbage too long.

  77. Just goes to show the so-called “insiders” have no idea what they are talking about. McCarthy wasn’t even mentioned as a candidate until news broke he was headed to Dallas for a meeting.

  78. “McCarthy should have better luck working in Dallas without princess Rodgers calling the shots. Although working under Jerry will have its cons I’m sure. Good hire for the Cowboys IMO.”

    Because the Packer regressed so much when he left. eyeroll

    For the record I think Mccarthy has a shot there with Dak. Same situation he walked into when he got the GB job, a QB to fine tune.

  79. I think the Cowboys in time will learn that Rodgers in his prime made McCarthy a winning coach. And that he’s not necessarily a winning coach without a star QB.

    84 mil for someone you don’t consider a star QB? That’s gotta be hard for you to swallow.

  80. Meh. Eight openings last year and no team was interested. LaFleur takes over and wins 13 games.

  81. Swapping out head coaches will not succeed as long as Jerry continues to stick his nose into everything and undermines the head coach. When Jerry holds press conferences outside the locker room after games and directly contradicts what McCarthy just said, that just continues what Jerry did to Garrett and previous head coaches. They will not win until Jerry realizes that his ego does not come as first priority.

  82. Okay, you have a coach. Maybe a very good coach. What will you do with Dak? Franchise tag? Long-term deal? Cut him and move on?

    I like Dak but it’s clear he’s inaccurate and not a franchise QB. The waiting continues…

    Dak has been stepping on the field for several years now. Can MM actually make Dak more accurate or teach him how to throw receivers open? I hope he can but I’m skeptical.

  86. Mike will do just fine in Dallas,…… as long as Jerry can keep his nose out of everything.
    McCarthy won’t put up with it if he does. You’ll be looking for a new Head Coach if Jerry can’t constrain himself. The smartest thing Jerry could do is Hire John Dorsey as his GM.

  87. McCarthy’s approach was a winner 15 years ago, but he hasn’t adapted to the current NFL. I predict one-and-done.

  88. Good luck with that, cowboy fans. McCarthy was and is nothing more than a lucky SOB, falling into a team with back to back HOF QBs and taking credit for THEIR talent. I’m a Viking fan, but ask any Packer fan and they will agree with me (and hate having to agree with a Viking fan in anything, LOL) but it’s the truth.

  89. There goes a whole new generation of wasted talent. Coaches that are available, are so fora reason. Not a totally bad hire, but this really feels like a lateral move. Is he really going to be a difference maker on Sunday, is he really going to come in and bring new innovation to play calling and game plans ?.. also mike Nolan as DC !! Just a bunch of tiered old retreads that every team in the league has film on 25 years of no SB and this is the best they can up with. ?? LAME !!

    I don’t know how much you watched Rodgers early in his career, from the sounds of it, not much, but in blowouts when he would come in for Favre, there were times he looked like he would never make it in the NFL as a starter.

    Wouldn’t every GM/Coach have taken Rodgers if they could just bank on taking credit for how talented he was? You make him seem as if they should have handed him a HOF jacket instead of a jersey when he was drafted.

  91. McCarthy is a upgrade. How big of a upgrade is debatable.

    If this was Sean Payton leaving NO and going to DAL, the peanut gallery would be just as laughable.

    Getting a SB winning Head Coach is a big deal.

    His problem is a defense that can’t tackle or stay healthy. If you honestly believe he won’t implement a more structured offense, you are just plain nuts.

    That defense in Dallas is a complete and utter joke. No heart, no fundamentals and rarely healthy. Just a sham.

  92. > McCarthy should have better luck working in Dallas without princess Rodgers calling
    > the shots.

    …because it will be soooooo much easier with King Jerrah calling them lol.

    Dallas better hope McCarthy actually pays attention in meetings this time around.

  93. Browns should not waste their time with Mcdaniels. If he left the Colts hanging he certainly won’t take the Browns. The fact that the Pats were eliminated on Saturday and the interview has not been pushed up should say something. Bienemy is their best bet. This man has been interviewing for years and has a wealth of assistant experience. He will be hungry to achieve since he has been waiting so long.
