For some, the Mike McCarthy experiment should be over.
After falling to 2-5 on the season, the Dallas Cowboys season is spiraling downward. ESPN analyst Keshawn Johnson believes that this could be an easy fix going into next season. His hot take features a blockbuster coaching move that he believes Jerry Jones should make sooner than later.
Johnson appeared on Monday’s edition of First Take and believes that Jones should go out and snatch up Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.
“If I was Jerry Jones, I’d blow it up and go get Jim Harbaugh,” said Johnson.
Stephen A. Smith, known for trolling the Cowboys while being an avid New York Giants fan, dismissed the thought completely. He said that Harbaugh was a great NFL coach “a long time ago.”
Harbaugh has been with Michigan since 2015 and owns a 48-18 overall record. Harbaugh is a Michigan alum and leads the 1-0 Wolverwines. Before his time with Michigan, Harbaugh coached the San Francisco 49ers and led the team to a Super Bowl in 2012.
When Harbaugh left San Francisco, he was 44-19-1 with a 5-3 playoff record and no losing seasons.
It’s fair to take Smith’s side, which is that the league has changed since Harbaugh last coached. This isn’t saying that Harbaugh couldn’t adapt, but Harbaugh has been linked to the Cowboys job for the last two seasons and nothing happened.
When Jason Garrett was getting ousted, Harbaugh was never interviewed. He appears to be set at Michigan and he doesn’t look like he is leaving anytime soon.
If Harbaugh was available, do you think he is the right fix for the Cowboys coaching woes?
