In 2024, the Dallas Cowboys will formally resume play under Mike McCarthy. After ESPN's Adam Schefter announced that he would be retained next season, Jerry Jones issued a statement on the decision.

McCarthy's future was called into question following Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, which saw the Cowboys trail 48-16 at one point

Dallas started the game as the NFC's No. 2 seed and became the first team to lose to a No. 7 seed since the playoffs expanded in 2020.

Despite the unfortunate outcome, Jones confirmed McCarthy's safety. He explained his reasoning in a lengthy statement Wednesday night.

"I believe this team is very close and capable of achieving our ultimate goals and the best step forward for us will be with Mike McCarthy as our head coach,

Jones went on to say. "There is significant advantage in maintaining the team's success under Mike's direction as our head coach. 

Mike has the highest regular-season winning percentage of any head coach in Cowboys history,

we will work with him to translate that into postseason success. Mike's career has certainly exhibited high levels of postseason success, and we are confident that this will continue.
