The Dallas Cowboys moved quickly to lock in Jason Garrett’s replacement.

Former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy agreed to a deal with the organization Monday to be the franchise’s next head coach, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported.

After a weeklong wait, the Cowboys announced Sunday that Garrett, who led the team to a 85-67 record since taking over midway through the 2010 season, would not receive an extension.

McCarthy spent last season out of the NFL after being fired by the Packers with four games remaining in the 2018 campaign. He compiled a 125-77-2 record in nearly 13 years in Green Bay, reaching the playoffs nine times andwinninga Super Bowl in the 2010 season.

During his year away from the NFL, McCarthy worked with a team of former coaches to analyze developments throughout the league while reviewing his own tendencies.

McCarthy, 56, interviewed with the team this weekend, according to multiple reports, and also spoke with the Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers and New York Giants about their vacancies.

The Cowboys also interviewed former Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis over the weekend, according to multiple reports.
