REPORT: Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy Is Getting ‘Fed Up’ With Jerry Jones Undermining Him

Mike McCarthy is entering 2024 in the final year of his contract with the Dallas Cowboys and some believe he’s a “lame duck” head coach.

Due to the contract and the overall structure of the Cowboys hierarchy, it seems like McCarthy is getting annoyed with the organization, particularly owner Jerry Jones.

According to a report from Tyler Duane of Go Long, McCarthy is getting “fed up” with some of Jones’ tactics.

“[McCarthy’s] doing it the best he can,” a former Cowboys personnel man noted. “Some of the people I’ve talked to have said that he’s getting fed up with it a little bit.


“It’s hard. I feel bad for Dak. I think Dak’s a really good quarterback who is capable of taking a team to the Super Bowl. He’s got to overcome a lot of things.”

It will be interesting to see if any tension boils over during the season. The Cowboys face a brutal stretch to start the season, facing seven 2023 playoff teams over the first ten games. An early losing streak will make McCarthy’s seat as hot as can be. 

Dallas will kick off its 2024 campaign on Sunday, September 8, on the road against the Cleveland Browns. Tom Brady will be making his broadcasting debut for the game on FOX.
