The Mike McCarthy era is officially underway. After spending 13 years as the head man in Green Bay, and taking a year off from football, he got his first chance to address the masses as the ninth head coach in the storied history of the Dallas Cowboys.
As things got underway, Owner Jerry Jones quickly explained what he and the organization were looking for in finding the man to lead the organization back to prominence.
“One of our primary goals in selecting the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys was to focus on a proven team-builder and winner,” Jones said. “Someone who’s got a proven track record of winning not only consistently, but at the highest level. In Mike McCarthy, we found a coach who not only checked those boxes, but also has the experience of taking an NFL team to the biggest stage, the Super Bowl, and completing the job.”
Once Jones turned things over to McCarthy, the Cowboy’s new head honcho began with a little humor to break the ice.
