Jerry Jones has Mike McCarthy’s replacement coach in place, in case the Cowboys fail meet their postseason expectations.
Jones already stated that the Cowboys will be playing in the Super Bowl this season. This is a huge task for a team that has not played in the Super Bowl since 1996. To reach the Super Bowl, the Cowboys will have to beat teams like the Packers and Buccaneers.
Although the odds seem stacked against Jones, Jones feels that this is their year. Jones has already a replacement for McCarthy if Dallas doesn’t make it to the postseason.
CBS Sports was informed by an anonymous source that Jones may consider elevating Kellen Moon to the head coach if McCarthy is fired for a poor postseason performance.
“If this season doesn’t end the way Jerry thinks it should, don’t be surprised if Kellen Moore is their next head coach much sooner than later,” said one source who knows Jones well, via CBS Sports. “He does not want to lose him.”
Some who know Jerry Jones well anticipate major changes if this team fails to meet expectations, especially wirh the prospect of losing both coordinators lingering next week https://t.co/sfyuFiH4n5

Kellen Moore is a rising star in the coaching industry. Jerry Jones does not want to lose him but he must if he wants to promote him.
Jones expects Mike McCarthy to live up to his expectations. This expectation is for a Super Bowl.
Sunday’s match will see the Cowboys take on the 49ers.
