Dak Prescott may be bitter after failing to land a long-term contract extension this offseason, but he's still impressed his new coaching staff.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy lauded the quarterback as his team works through the early stages of training camp, particularly Prescott's attitude on and off the field.

"I've really enjoyed his personality," McCarthy said, according to The Dallas Morning News' David Moore. "He's very upbeat, very driven. I'd say he's kind of picked up where he left off based on what I've been told about him as far as he operates. Very detailed in his preparation."

McCarthy added: "I'm very pleased with where he is and very impressed."

Prescott will play the upcoming campaign on the $31.4-million franchise tag but stated last month he holds no ill will toward Dallas over the inability to work out a deal.

The former fourth-round pick set career highs last year with 4,902 passing yards and 30 touchdowns while completing 65.1% of his attempts.
