It’s official: Former Cowboys backup QB Kellen Moore has been named Dallas’ new offensive coordinator, after Scott Linehan was fired a couple weeks ago.

Linehan served as the Cowboys OC from 2014-2018, and now Kellen Moore will be handed the reigns to take control of the gameplan for Dak, Zeke, and the rest of the Cowboys offense.

Moore served as the quarterback coach for Dallas in 2018, the same year he retired from playing.

The now 29-year-old was an absolute stud in college at Boise State. I mean, just look at these numbers he put up.

Unfortunately, those stats were overlooked for his size and arm strength that scouts thought wouldn’t translate to the NFL.

Moore went undrafted. He subsequently signed with the Detroit Lions, but didn’t play a single regular season snap.

Moore appeared in three games for the Cowboys in 2015. He averaged throwing 259.7 yards a game, with a quarterback rating of 71.0.

Since the Prosser, Washington native is starting this coaching thing at a very young age, there’s a good chance Moore could follow the Todd McVay formula and have a bright career ahead of him.
