The Dallas Cowboys have hired Mike McCarthy, the former head coach of the Green Bay Packers, to lead them into the 2020 season. While the 2020 season was a disappointment due to quarterback Dak Prescott’s injury, the outlook for 2021 appears to be brighter. The Cowboys have a 2-1 record, with the loss coming against the defending Super Bowl champions on the road. McCarthy has been chastised for his clock management, but he’s assembled a strong staff and has his team performing well in 2021. Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, is unlikely to second-guess his decision to hire McCarthy (at least for the time being).
However, Jones admitted this week that the Cowboys were considering another head coach for 2020: the head coach of his Week 4 opponent.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted that former Baylor coach Matt Rhule was a possible target for his team. Jones, on the other hand, preferred a more experienced head coach. The Cowboys reportedly never contacted Rhule in an official capacity.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on @1053thefan that they did a lot of research on Panthers coach Matt Rhule when they were looking for their next coach in Jan. 2020. “At the end of the day, I liked (Mike McCarthy’s) experience. Mike, for pro football, had more skins on the wall.”
