McCarthy leaves lasting impression in farewell speech to players

It's now official: Former Packers coach Mike McCarthy is going to Dallas.

According to the Associated Press, the Cowboys interviewed McCarthy and former Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis over the weekend.

McCarthy reached the playoffs nine times in 13 seasons with the Packers, reaching the NFC championship game four times. Green Bay won at least 10 games eight times in his first 11 seasons before going 7-9 in 2017. McCarthy was fired with the Packers at 4-7-1 last season.

This comes days after the Cowboys fired Jason Garrett, who was the Cowboys coach for nearly 10 years.
