Ezekiel Elliot Gets Brutally Honest About New Cowboys Coach
Ezekiel Elliot got brutally honest about new Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy this week.
Elliot played the first four years of his career under former Dallas coach, current New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
That all changed this offseason when the Cowboys finished 2019 with an underwhelming 8-8 record and failed to make the postseason.
Now McCarthy was brought in to fix what ailed the team last year.
On Wednesday, Elliot spoke to ESPN NFL insider Diana Russini and opened up about a meeting he had with McCarthy recently.
Ezekiel Elliott on Mike McCarthy:”I got an opportunity to talk to him one time, and it was a nice visit a couple weeks ago. Wasn’t very long, but kinda getting to know each other a bit, talking a little ball, what we thought we needed to do going into next year.” #cowboys

“I got an opportunity to talk to him one time, and it was a nice visit a couple weeks ago,” he said.
“Wasn’t very long, but kind of getting to know each other a bit, talking a little ball, what we thought we needed to do going into next year.”
McCarthy enjoyed a decent amount of success with the Green Bay Packers before getting fired.
Over the course of a 13-year stretch with the organization he amassed a record of 125-77-2. In the process, he won one Super Bowl, appeared in nine postseasons and ultimately had the NFC North in a stranglehold.
Last season Elliot recorded 1,357 yards and 12 scores on 301 carries.
It remains to be seen how these two will ultimately work together on the field, but off the field they seem to be getting along well so far.
