The Dallas Cowboys have already announced that head coach Mike McCarthy will retain his head coaching job with the team for the 2024 season. But that doesn’t mean that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t at least entertaining other ideas, offering some very intriguing comments about legendary head coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday.

Belichick notably interviewed for the Atlanta Falcons coaching job, but was passed up for the job in favor of Raheem Morris. With only two vacant coaching jobs remaining, it seems like Belichick is now destined for a media job instead.

If he does want to return to coaching in the future, it seems like Jerry Jones is at least somewhat interested. In a discussion with the media on Tuesday, Jones opened up about his relationship with Belichick.

“I know him personally and I like him,” Jones said of Belichick via Yahoo Sports. “There’s no doubt in my mind we could work together. None. None.”

It’s pretty strange of him to say this at this time, particularly because he did just retain McCarthy for the 2024 season. If he wanted Belichick for next season, it certainly seems like now is a perfect time to make the move given Belichick’s departure in New England.

If Belichick indeed steps away from coaching for the 2024 season, there is no guarantee that he will want to return to coaching given his age.

That being said, if the Cowboys have another disappointing end of the year in 2024 and Belichick is interested in coaching again, don’t be shocked to see him on the sidelines in Cowboys blue for the 2025-26 season.
