Mike McCarthy heads into a crucial second season as the Dallas Cowboys head coach in 2021. While last year was a disappointing one, much of that stemmed from starting quarterback Dak Prescott getting injured and missing the majority of the season.

Heading into the offseason Prescott was in need of a new contract and at times his future with the franchise seemed in doubt. However, the team and Prescott ultimately came to an agreement on a long-term deal (4 years/$160 million) and McCarthy, after seeing how bleak things were last season without Prescott, was elated upon hearing the news while vacationing in Florida.

In fact, McCarthy said of his reaction, "It's a lot easier to do cartwheels on the sand, I'll say that."

The image of McCarthy doing cartwheels in the sand on some Florida beach out of pure joy is a hilarious one. It's too bad there is no video evidence of that for fans to enjoy. Although, I think they will be happy enough just to have their star quarterback signed for the next four years.
