Dallas Cowboys hire Mike McCarthy to be new head coach
The Dallas Cowboys made the decision to go a different direction from head coach Jason Garrett. Not 24 hours later, the team has already decided on their choice for next head coach. That choice is former Green Bay Packers’ head coach Mike McCarthy.
According to a report from Jay Glazer via Bleacher Report on Twitter, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with McCarthy.

Fans would most likely remember McCarthy as the person that led the Packers to a Super Bowl title in 2010. He managed to lead Aaron Rodgers to multiple winning seasons where they proceeded to reach the playoffs for eight straight years before he was fired in 2017 for his inability to turn a sinking ship around.
One thing fans can look forward to in McCarthy’s leadership is his ability to mold quarterbacks. McCarthy turned Rodgers from a man who was barely getting any snaps in his first three seasons into one of the most talented quarterbacks that ever graced the game. Without his leadership, the Packers would not have had so much success.
However, the problem with McCarthy-led teams is that they’re incredibly weak on defense. Under his tutelage, the Packers struggled defensively. This was especially evident during the 2010s where they never had any top-10 defenses.
This hiring may have fans scratching their heads about how the Cowboys will play. They hope that the introduction of a coach who won a Super Bowl will finally end the Super Bowl drought that began in 1996.
McCarthy has his work cut out for him, but Dallas feels good about this move.
