Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy to stay, but two coaching staff get axed after playoff loss vs 49ers

With 19-12 divisional playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the Cowboys lost in the divisional stage for the seventh time in a row and have failed to reach the NFC final game since earning their fifth Super Bowl title following the 1995 season.

As an obvious aftermath, there has been a few changes in the team followed by the defeat. Many has anticipated that the HC Mike McCarthy will finally be replaced. but it turned out to be something slightly different. Scroll down to find out!

The team is letting go of the linebackers coach George Edwards and running backs coach Skip Peete. As it turns out, both of these coaches were at the end of their contract with the Cowboys. The team did’t approach for a renewal of their contracts after subsequent losses.

Many may wonder, why Mike McCarthy wasn’t added to the list. Well, the fact that McCarthy presided over consecutive 12-win seasons is the greatest justification for retaining him as coach of the Cowboys.

McCarthy deserves the job next year as he has delivered two 12-win seasons and only lost to the best roster in football.
