Breaking: Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy to return for 2024 season

The news has finally landed and there will not be a change atop the Dallas Cowboys coaching tree. Head coach Mike McCarthy will return for the 2024 season, his final under his five-year contract signed in 2020. Based on his regular season results this seemed like a foregone conclusion, but Dallas’ disastrous wild-card round loss clouded the picture.

After finishing 12-5 for the third consecutive season and winning the NFC East for the second time in the span, McCarthy’s Cowboys looked woefully inept in their home defeat against the Green Bay Packers. Dallas lost 48-32, in a game that wasn’t that close, as the only home team to lose among the six games over the weekend. After meeting with him on Wednesday, owner Jerry Jones informed McCarthy he would get the chance to redeem himself.
