Reports: Cowboys interviewing McCarthy, Lewis

Former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and longtime Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis are interviewing with the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, according to multiple outlets.

The Cowboys don’t officially have a vacancy, but Jason Garrett’s contract expires on Jan. 14 and Dallas is reportedly interested in candidates with previous head coaching experience.

McCarthy, 56, has already met with the Cleveland Browns, New York Giants and Carolina Panthers.

He was fired by the Packers on Dec. 2, 2018, after the team dropped to 4-7-1 during his 13th season at the helm in Green Bay. He finished with a 125-77-2 regular-season record while going 10-8 in the postseason, including a victory in Super Bowl XLV in the 2010 season.

McCarthy’s Packers twice knocked Garrett’s Cowboys out of the playoffs, winning divisional-round games on Jan. 11, 2015 (26-21 at Lambeau Field) and Jan. 15, 2017 (34-31 at AT&T Stadium).

Lewis, 61, coached the Bengals for 16 seasons and compiled a 131-122-3 record with seven playoff appearances (0-7 record) from 2003-18.

Cincinnati fired Lewis after a 6-10 season in 2018 and hired Zac Taylor.

Lewis spent the 2019 season as a special advisor to head coach Herm Edwards at Arizona State.
