McCarthy will replace Jason Garrett, who went 85-67 as Dallas' coach from 2010 to 2019.

Owner Jerry Jones is hopeful that McCarthy will do something that no Dallas coach has done since January 1996 - win the Super Bowl.

McCarthy, 56, led the Packers to a Super Bowl XLV triumph against the Pittsburgh Steelers at AT&T Stadium, which will be his new home with the Cowboys.

During his career, McCarthy has notched a 125-77-2 record with the Packers and made the playoffs in nine of his 13 seasons.

In addition to his Super Bowl championship, the Packers made it to the NFC Championship Game two times.

We'll have more on this breaking story as it emerges.
