Insider NFL: The Cowboys Mike McCarthy’s Job Likely Requires a Strong Postseason Performance.

However, they could potentially avoid facing them until the conference championship game if both teams advance that far. San Francisco secured the No. 1 seed in the NFC in Week 17, and Dallas has the opportunity to secure the 2-seed with a victory in Week 18.

If McCarthy fails to overcome the 49ers for the third consecutive year, or worse, if the Cowboys suffer an early exit before a potential rematch, it wouldn’t be surprising if owner Jerry Jones starts considering a new head coach for the 2024 season.

Interestingly, Jones may not need to search extensively. In February 2023, he awarded defensive coordinator Dan Quinn a contract valued between $4.5 to $5 million for the 2023 season. Considering Quinn’s exceptional performance with the Cowboys’ defense, promoting the former Falcons head coach could be a logical move for the longstanding Cowboys owner.

However, this scenario might not unfold if McCarthy leads Dallas to success in the upcoming weeks. The next month is likely to play a crucial role in determining how much longer McCarthy will continue as the head coach of the Cowboys.
