Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy was fined $100,000 “for holding practices that were deemed too physical by the NFL.”
The league is also taking away one OTA session for 2023 as part of the punishment.
McCarthy, who joined the Cowboys on a five-year deal in 2020, was also fined by the league last season 2021 for $50,000 for violations of OTA policies and Dallas was fined an additional $100,000.
Just like the Commanders and Texans head coaches Ron Rivera and Lovie Smith fines, the NFL seems to be slightly cracking down on policies for their player for the future.
According to ESPN, McCarthy cut the Cowboys’ mandatory minicamp down from three practices to one this week, but that did not have to do with the penalty.
The report noted that the Cowboys held a team-building event at Topgolf on Wednesday, and the veterans were excused Thursday while the rookies met with coaches and had final weight-lifting session.
