Report: Cowboys interviewing Marvin Lewis for HC job

  Report: Cowboys interviewing Marvin Lewis for HC job The Dallas Cowboys have not officially announced they’ve moved on from head coach Jason Garrett but it is definitely written on the wall, Garrett is gone.It’s in this that the writing is on the wall. If the Cowboys’ first slate of interviews is any indication, Garrett is gone.

For coach Mike McCarthy, one of the biggest issues during the latter part of his Green Bay Packers career was a disagreement with quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The two were not on the same page when it came to McCarthy calling plays.

We’re not going to see the same issue now that McCarthy has been hired as new head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. He told the media on Thursday that the plan is for offensive coordinator Kellen Moore to call plays next season.

After flirting with the possibility of going elsewhere after Jason Garrett was fired in Dallas, the 31-year-old Moore ultimately returned to the Cowboys under McCarthy.

Moore has only one season of experience as an offensive coordinator. However, Dallas had more success with Moore calling plays compared to Garrett this past season.

McCarthy’s decision should help make for a seamless transition from the Cowboys’ under-performing days under Garrett. This only adds another layer to that.
