There are plenty of rumors that head coach Mike McCarthy may be shown the door after just one season with the Dallas Cowboys. Team owner Jerry Jones recently spoke out on the speculations. He made it clear that he has no intention of making McCarthy a one-and-done coach for the Cowboys. Instead, Jones envisions the 57-year old to remain on the sidelines for the team next season.
Via Clarence Hill Jr. of LA Crosse Tribune:
“Not one time, not one time have I been in any discussion, had any dream, been sitting by myself, have I given a thought to anything but Mike McCarthy being our coach next year, and being our coach in the future,” Jerry Jones said on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday. “How in the hell something like that could get going with a conversation with Stephen or anybody else about whether McCarthy is going to be the coach or not is ridiculous.
So that clears things up. The man already set it straight.
Jones also didn't appreciate all the chatter that he was going to let go of McCarthy after one season. The 78-year old added that he values continuity and shouldn't let one bad season sway his decision to let him go right away.
Dallas certainly had some bad luck this year after star quarterback Dak Prescott went down with a gruesome injury. They are currently 4-9 on the year and will look forward to build this team with McCarthy still calling the shots.
