Mike McCarthy says coaching staff's 'not where we need to be'


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, as he does each Friday morning, joined Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan.

McCarthy was asked about the decision to hire Mike Nolan as the defensive coordinator, and more importantly why he feels Nolan should continue on as the defensive coordinator of the Cowboys?

"I think our staff as a whole is not where we need to be. And that's ultimately my responsibility. We're going through things for the first time, as all first-year staffs do. There's not a lot of continuity between coaches because most of us have not worked together before. And so when you talk about development, it doesn't just stop at players. You're developing a program, a system. Coordinating things that have been here in the past. You have a training staff that's been together a long time. But we're not doing things exactly how they've been done the last 20 years. You're trying to coordinate that and put it all together. That's part of building a program. It's no different in all phases, especially with the coaching staff."
