Cowboys keep head coach Mike McCarthy for 2024 NFL season

Days after falling to a disappointing wildcard playoff round loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Dallas Cowboys are bringing back head coach Mike McCarthy for a fifth season.

Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones voiced that he spoke with McCarthy, where he cemented his decision to move forward with him at the helm.

“I believe this team is very close and capable of achieving our ultimate goals and the best step forward for us will be with Mike McCarthy as our head coach,” Jones said in a statement released by the team via ESPN. “There is great benefit to continuing the team’s progress under Mike’s leadership as our head coach.”

Since McCarthy’s arrival, the Cowboys have become a playoff constant, winning the NFC East division title twice in the last three years.

Under his direction, Dallas has become the first team in the Super Bowl era to win at least 12 regular-season games in three consecutive seasons but not reach a conference title game over that stretch.

The Cowboys hold a 1-3 playoff record under McCarthy, which includes a pair of wildcard round losses. The one win occurred in 2022 when Dallas topped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in what became Tom Brady’s final NFL game.

There had been speculation concerning a possible head coach change, but Jones remains confident in McCarthy. The Cowboys were linked to former New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, but he appears to be interested elsewhere with the Atlanta Falcons.

Nonetheless, McCarthy has one more season to prove that he can lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl.
