The Dallas Cowboys had a long and tedious time trying to figure out their next head coaching move. They finally moved on from Jason Garrett and wasted no time in hiring Mike McCarthy as their new head coach.

Mike McCarthy was previously the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, where he stayed for thirteen seasons until being let go after a loss to the Arizona Cardinals in December 2018. He has a career head coaching record of 125-77-2 and won Super Bowl XLV with the Packers. McCarthy played a key role in the development of Aaron Rodgers who has become one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He will now have a young and talented offense in Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
The Cowboys finished the season 8-8 and missed the playoffs. They had one of the best offenses in the league but could not capitalize and win ball games. Dallas is hoping McCarthy can help lead the team back to greatness.
McCarthy began his NFL career in 1993 with the Kansas City Chiefs as a offensive quality control coach and later became the quarterbacks coach. He had a brief stint in Green Bay as the team’s quarterbacks coach in 1999 before becoming the Saints offensive coordinator from 2000-2004. After serving as the 49ers offensive coordinator in 2005, he became the Green Bay Packers head coach till his dismissal in 2018.
