It’s a pretty interesting move considering Jason Garrett is still officially the head coach of the team and hasn’t been removed by owner Jerry Jones.

These are some very interesting decisions from Jones. Marvin Lewis makes next to no sense. You’re going to fire Jason Garrett to hire Lewis?
That’s a clown move, and it’s not a smart decision at all. I wouldn’t even argue that it’s a lateral move.
I’d argue swapping Garrett out for Lewis is a downgrade. What the hell is Jerry Jones doing?
McCarthy is certainly a solid coach, and he knows his Xs and Os as well as anybody else does. He’s got tons of experience, he won a Super Bowl and he knows how to work with big time quarterbacks.
Dak Prescott could benefit greatly from McCarthy being the leader of the Cowboys.
Is he a for sure upgrade over Garrett? I’d argue that he his, but it’s not as splashy as I think a lot of fans were expecting.
He’s not Urban Meyer. That much is for sure.
Keep checking back for more updates when we have them. The Cowboys coaching search is the biggest story in the NFL right now, and we’re locked in.
