Kellen Moore was an NFL quarterback for the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys from 2012 to 2017. In 2018, the Cowboys employed him as their new quarterbacks coach. In that season, Dak Prescott’s passing yards went up. He also saw his yards/attempt go from 6.8 to 7.4. Prescott also saw his completion percentage go up five percent and his interceptions down into single digits.
Moore took over as Dallas’s offensive coordinator in 2019. The Cowboys had one of the NFL’s best offenses. Prescott threw for nearly 5,000 yards and 30 touchdowns and saw his yards/attempt climb to 8.2. Dallas had two 1,000 yard receivers after having none in 2018 and their running backs averaged 4.6 yards/carry. The offensive line gave up a 3.7 percent sack rating, the lowest of Prescott’s career. Moore led the Cowboys’ offense to sixth in scoring, first in total yards, first in passing yards, fifth in rushing yards, tied for fifth in passing touchdowns, tied for fifth in rushing touchdowns.
If rumors are true that the Cowboys plan to fire the entire staff, Moore could be a hot candidate. There were some times that Moore made some questionable calls, though overall he was brilliant. Teaming up with McVay could potentially help him become a head coach in 2021 if the Rams returned to their previous dominance. Though he wouldn’t be the ultimate playcaller in Los Angeles, he would be heavily involved in the offense.
