I’ll admit it. I’ve never been invited to a Jerry Jones sleepover. I know. Shocker. But sources have always told me they are the best. Netflix. Card games. Pillow fights. Rom Coms. Popcorn. Gossip. Contract negotiations. And as Schefter said, once you go to a Jerry Jones sleepover, you’re hooked. Which appears to hold true judging from the reports surfacing this morning:
I’ve blogged about it a couple times in the last week but McCarthy has been my No. 1 choice to replace Garrett and become the Cowboys 9th head coach in franchise history. So, personally, I love the move.
McCarthy compiled a 125-77-2 record with the Packers and made the playoffs in 9 of his 13 seasons. In addition to his Super Bowl win in 2010, McCarthy led the Packers to the NFC Championship Game 2 times and also had a 7-3 record against Dallas while with Green Bay, twice ending the Boys season in the divisional round (2014 and 2016 playoffs).
As to the Cowboys staff under Jason Garrett, reports indicate the Cowboys current OC Kellen Moore, O-line coach Marc Colombo, QB coach Jon Kitna and WR coach Sanjay Lal are likely to stay with the team. However, most of the defensive staff, including coordinator Rod Marinelli and passing game coordinator Kris Richard, have expiring contracts which are unlikely to be renewed.
Bottom line, a new era begins in Dallas today and a lot of credit has to go to Jerry hosting an incredible sleepover on Sunday:
