FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys' head coach, Mike McCarthy, will return for a fifth season, the team said Wednesday.
Jerry Jones, the owner and general manager, met with McCarthy on Wednesday after the coach had done conducting exit interviews with the players.
"I believe this team is very close to and capable of achieving our ultimate goals, and the best step forward for us will be with Mike McCarthy as our head coach," Jones stated in a team release.
"There is great benefit to continuing the team's progress under Mike's leadership as our head coach."
The Cowboys are coming off a wild-card loss to the Green Bay Packers at AT&T Stadium that left Jones "floored."
Jones lauded McCarthy after the regular-season finale versus the Washington Commanders, but said, "We'll see how each game goes," when questioned about the coach's future.
All of this fueled rumors that Jones may replace McCarthy.
"Our loss on Sunday is shared by everyone here, not just Coach McCarthy," Jones stated in a statement released on Wednesday. "Our players." Our coaches.
