Mike McCarthy will be the ninth head coach in the history of the Dallas Cowboys, a source confirmed to ESPN. McCarthy replaces Jason Garrett, who went 85-67 as Dallas’ coach from 2010 to 2019, with the hope that McCarthy can do for the Cowboys what he did for another storied franchise — win a Super Bowl.
In February 2011, McCarthy led the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl XLV win against the Pittsburgh Steelers at AT&T Stadium, his new home with the Cowboys.
McCarthy compiled a 125-77-2 record with the Packers and made the playoffs in nine of his 13 seasons. In addition to the Super Bowl season, the Packers made it to the NFC Championship Game two times, but his tenure ended sourly, missing the playoffs in 2017 and getting fired after 12 games in 2018
