It looks like the Cowboys won’t be changing everyone on the offensive staff.

On Friday the Dallas Cowboys fired offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and a move of that size has quite the ripple effect on the entire coaching staff.

We have no idea who the Cowboys will hire to replace Scott Linehan, but we do know that one of his pupils is likely remain on staff. Kellen Moore is expected to stay on as the Cowboys quarterbacks coach according to The Athletic.

Moore was in his first season of coaching with the Cowboys having transitioned to the staff from being Dak Prescott’s backup. He was forced onto the practice squad in 2017 due to the team not wanting to lose Cooper Rush and has managed to stick around with the team ever since.

Kellen Moore has been tied to Scott Linehan for a long time and many thought that the two would move in a pair whether that was with or without the Cowboys. That doesn’t look to be the case as Moore will reportedly be back for 2019.
