dallas cowboys Owner Jerry Jones has elected to keep Mike McCarthy through the 2024 season, but he would definitely prefer another head coach.
Cowboys lose at home in wild-card round green bay packers — a 48-32 performance — had many questioning McCarthy’s future as the team’s head coach.
Despite a 12-5 regular season for the third consecutive season that ended with the NFC East title, Dallas once again fell short of its Super Bowl aspirations.
However, Jones decided to give McCarthy Another kick in the can.
The decision came at a time when Bill Belichick was, and still is, a free agent. Despite passing on Belichick in favor of McCarthy, Jones thinks he and Belichick could be a good match.
“I know him personally, I like him,” Jones said at the Senior Bowl. According to Yahoo Sports“There’s no doubt in my mind that we can work together. No. No.”
Jones added that he hasn’t talked to “any head coaching candidates other than myself.” So while he admires Belichick, McCarthy always seemed to be Jones’ answer.
The Cowboys were a good regular-season team under McCarthy, but they only managed one playoff win during McCarthy’s four-year tenure (he had 6 in his first season in 2020). record of 10 wins and 10 losses). tt been there super bowl That’s not good enough for an owner who demands success and demands the Vince Lombardi Trophy every season since 1995.
Jones initially said “we’ll see how each game goes in the playoffs” when discussing McCarthy’s future, but changed his tune before the Packers game.
“I’m very happy with what he’s done, and I mean it,” he said on 105.3 The Fan.
“He’s been the biggest difference this year. … So, the last thing I want to do is spend time talking to him about these things – the deal, extending the deal – especially when I already have a deal. So, it’s so.”
McCarthy’s contract with the Cowboys expires after the 2024 season, adding pressure to win when next season begins.
