When Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy had the same job with the Packers, he tangled often with Vikings teams that had George Edwards on their coaching staff as the defensive coordinator.

McCarthy and Edwards are set to be on the same side this season, however. Edwards interviewed for a job with the team this week and Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Edwards has been hired.

Edwards was the Cowboys’ linebackers coach from 1998-2001 and is expected to work with the team’s linebackers again in this stint. Per Hill, he will have a bigger role once everything is finalized.

Scott McCurley has also been hired to work with linebackers, so it’s unclear how all the pieces will fit together but another experienced coach will be part of McCarthy’s first staff in Dallas.

  1. The best defense the Vikngs played in the whole Zimmer tenure was when Zim was out with his bad eye & Edwards called the game for once.

    Zimmer calls it, they get destroyed in big games.

  2. As McCarthy and Jones fight over the coaching staff. McCarthy wants his boys on staff, and Jones wants some of his boys…. Now children, no fighting.

    Fans only want to see a chance at playing in the next year’s Super Bowl. It’s been a long time for Cowboys fans.

  3. Are any of McCarthy’s staff under 55 years old! They can’t relate to the youth movement in the league of younger and younger players!
