If you're a Cowboys fan — and the odds say you probably are — then congrats: Mike McCarthy is your favorite football team's new head coach. 

According to Jay Glazer and his scoopage alert, your Monday morning is just absolutely oozing with scoopage: 

McCarthy, you may remember, is a grumpy henchman from any Marvel movie that also happened to coach the Packers from 2006-2018. While there, he benched Brett Favre, won a Super Bowl, and, last but certainly not least, found a way to make Aaron Rodgers a sympathetic figure. He was fired after a 2018 home loss to the (2-9) Arizona Cardinals, which is all you need to know about that game. 

And hey, here's a pretty weird tweet about the whole process: 

It makes sense: when you've got a chance to make a coaching hire that will thrill absolutely no one besides the immediate McCarthy family (congrats!), you can't let it slip through your hands. Great work Jerry!
