The Green Bay Packers and Head Coach Mike McCarthy parted ways during the 2018 NFL season. After joining the team in 2006, McCarthy would go on to have an extremely successful career with the Packers, highlighted by his 2010 Super Bowl Championship.
In 2020, McCarthy was hired as the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach. He has had similar success with the Cowboys. Through his first four seasons so far with the team he has posted a 40-23 record, and 2023 marks the third consecutive year the Cowboys have made the playoffs. Now, McCarthy’s future with the team got a pretty substantial update.
Former Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy Gets A Huge Update Regarding His Future With The Dallas Cowboys
Ian Rapoport highlighted that McCarthy could be in Dallas for quite some time:
While Dallas still has plenty left in its season, owner Jerry Jones was asked by NFL.com during the December League Meeting in Dallas whether he envisions a contract extension for McCarthy coming as a result of the team’s success. The indication was yes.
“That’ll have a course that seeks its own time frame,” said Jones of his coach who is under contract through 2024. “I don’t do anything of that sort until the season is over.”
McCarthy’s job status is always a topic of conversation in Dallas, but with Jones expected to address it after the season, perhaps that will quiet the speculation. Playoff success will really quiet any speculation. In most other situations, McCarthy would be the subject of coach of the year talk.
Jones was asked this week if he’s surprised by the success McCarthy’s offense has had.
“No. No,” Jones said. “What you’re seeing is the result of a lot of repetition, a lot of practices, not only in training camp, but through the early part of the year and so everybody’s executing better. And then adjustments have been made and the nuances of the offense — everything from blocking to coordination with receivers in Dak’s case.”
McCarthy Has Earned An Extension With The Cowboys
Since he took control of Dallas’ offense, he’s on his third consecutive season that will end with a playoff berth – a feat not achieved since Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer led the Cowboys to six straight postseasons between 1991 and 1996.
In addition to reaching the playoffs so frequently, the Cowboys win at home (they are riding a 15-game winning streak), bounce back after losses, and for the most part, handle division rivals well. Despite the lack of banners or streets named after McCarthy during his Dallas Cowboys tenure (yet), it’s impossible not to recognize his achievements.
If McCarthy is able to end his career with a Super Bowl Victory with two of the most storied franchises in NFL histroy (Cowboys and Packers) he would go down as one of the better head coaches ever.
