Cowboys to hire McCarthy as next coach

DALLAS A person with direct knowledge of the agreement says the Dallas Cowboys and Mike McCarthy have reached a deal for the former Green Bay coach to succeed Jason Garrett.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't announced the decision.

McCarthy interviewed over the weekend before the Cowboys had officially announced that Garrett wasn't returning. Garrett had an expiring contract coming off a make-or-break season that ended with Dallas missing the playoffs for the sixth time in his nine full seasons.

The 56-year-old McCarthy won a Super Bowl with the Packers on the Cowboys' home field nine years ago.
