Reports: ASU’s Marvin Lewis interviews with Dallas Cowboys
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Special advisor to Sun Devil Football Marvin Lewis interviewed for the Dallas Cowboys’ head coaching job on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer.
Former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was also reported to have interviewed with the Cowboys on Saturday.
Lewis spent time with Dallas on Friday and Saturday, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.
They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the club isn’t commenting publicly on its coaching situation, including the status of Garrett with his contract set to expire in 10 days.
One of the people said the Cowboys haven’t felt the urgency to address Garrett’s status because of the expiring contract. Dallas missed the playoffs for the sixth time in Garrett’s nine full seasons by finishing 8-8 in a year that started with high expectations.
The biggest knock on Lewis was his 0-7 playoff record with the Bengals. He had a 131-122-3 record in the regular season and was fired after a third straight losing season in 2018.
Lewis has been a special advisor to Arizona State head coach Herm Edwards’ staff since May of 2019.
