It’s Official The Cowboys Have Hired Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy Cowboys

While it took the Cowboys a little too long to fire their head coach Jason Garrett, they wasted no time hiring a new coach. It only became truly official on January 5th that Garrett was parting ways with the Cowboys. Well, early morning on the 6th, the Cowboys hired former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy.

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 seemingly didn’t get along with his star QB Aaron Rodgers at the end of his tenure in Green Bay, and it turns out he wasn’t too happy with the teams roster either.

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