The man who took the Green Bay Packers to their latest Super Bowl championship and led them for more than a dozen years will now become the head coach for the Dallas Cowboys, according to a report.
Jay Glazer of Fox Sports says that Mike McCarthy will be taking over as the Cowboys’ coach, replacing Jason Garrett.
McCarthy led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XLV as part of his career in Green Bay which spanned from 2006 until early December of 2018, when he was fired.
The Packers made the playoffs nine of McCarthy’s 12 years, including an eight-year consecutive stretch of postseasons – the third-longest such streak in NFL history.
His Packers teams made four NFC Championship Games (after the seasons of 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2016). The Cowboys last made that round of the playoffs, and last won a Super Bowl, in the 1995 season.
McCarthy also ranked second in Packers history for regular season wins with 125.
