Mike McCarthy chokes up at Cowboys introductory presser

Mike McCarthy Cowboys

Mike McCarthy was formally introduced as the new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, and it was not long before he became overcome with emotion.

McCarthy took a year off from coaching after he was fired by the Green Bay Packers toward the end of the 2018 season, and he fought back tears as he spoke about that at the very beginning of his press conference. He said his wife joked that he wasn’t going to make it 10 words before the tears started flowing.

Before McCarthy spoke, Jerry Jones noted that one of the reasons the Cowboys felt he was the right man for the job was that McCarthy has experience working with a storied franchise.

You could make the argument that McCarthy never deserved to be fired by the Packers, and his ousting probably had mostly to do with him butting heads with Aaron Rodgers. We’ve already explained in detail why we think McCarthy was the right hire for Dallas, and he is clearly looking forward to the opportunity.
