The Dallas Cowboys don’t plan on making a coaching change.

The Cowboys lost to the 49ers 23-17 Sunday night after one of the dumbest decisions in the history of the NFL. With the game on the line and no timeouts remaining, the Cowboys dialed up a quarterback draw and never got another snap off.

According to Jon Machota, Dallas EVP Stephen Jones appeared Monday on 105.3 The Fan, and said Mike McCarthy will “absolutely” remain as the head coach of the Cowboys.

The fact that the question even needed to be asked whether or not McCarthy would remain as the head coach of the Cowboys tells you everything you need to know.

Fans are furious after Sunday night, and it’s not hard to see why. The play-calling in the closing moments was horrific.

Closing out games is where coaches make their money, but McCarthy and company laid an egg.

Now, did I expect McCarthy to get fired after losing to the 49ers? Of course not. That would have been absolutely ridiculous.

Dallas had a great regular season and it was only his second year with the team. There was no chance he was getting canned, despite the fact there are probably a ton of fans who want to see it happen.

We’ll see what happens next season. If McCarthy implodes again, the team could very easily end up looking at other options.
