The Cowboys have announced that defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will serve as interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Quinn, who has previous head coaching experience with the Atlanta Falcons, will lead the team as they continue their pursuit of a Super Bowl title.

The search for a permanent head coach will begin immediately, with Jones emphasizing the importance of finding a leader who can build on McCarthy’s foundation. “We are committed to finding the right person to lead the Dallas Cowboys. Our focus is on continuing to develop our talented roster and achieving our ultimate goal of winning another Super Bowl.”

Fans and analysts alike will be closely watching the Cowboys’ next steps as the team navigates this unexpected change. McCarthy’s departure marks the end of an era for the Cowboys, but with a strong roster and experienced interim leadership, the team remains poised for success.

For now, the Cowboys will rally under Quinn’s guidance as they prepare for their upcoming games, determined to honor McCarthy’s legacy with a strong finish to the season.
