On Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys host the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC wild card matchup and it could be Mike McCarthy’s last game as Cowboys head coach.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could decide to fire McCarthy if the Cowboys lose and replace him with OC Kellen Moore, according to a report by Jason La Canfora.
From CBS Sports:
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could consider a coaching change if the team underperforms this season, league sources said, with his two top assistants to head coach Mike McCarthy raising serious interest as head coaches at other teams . Multiple sources who know Jones well said that a loss in the wild card round would prompt Jones to at least consider the team’s direction as coordinators Dan Quinn and Kellen Moore prepare for numerous head coaching interviews.
“If this season doesn’t end the way Jerry wants it to, don’t be surprised if much sooner or later, Kellen Moore becomes her next head coach,” said a source who knows Jones well. “He doesn’t want to lose him.”
