We currently find ourselves in a state of limbo when it comes to the Dallas Cowboys and who will be their offensive coordinator. Will we see an internal promotion? Maybe. Will the Cowboys bring in someone new from outside the organization? Anything is possible.

There are a lot of factors that go into determining the offensive coordinator. Dallas has to consider what type of offense they want to run (whether something new or more of the same), what changes they want to make, and what suits their strengths best.

One name that’s been thrown out a lot when you talk about this has been Kellen Moore. The former Cowboys quarterback served as the coach of that position group during his first year on an NFL staff last season and there are murmurings that he could be moving into the suddenly vacant OC office.

Part of why Moore is such a sensible option for Dallas is that Dak Prescott is a fan. Jerry Jones said earlier this week at the Senior Bowl that Dak’s input is certainly valuable for decisions like this as Tony Romo’s was during his career.

While Dak’s input may be significant, it hasn’t been inputted yet. Prescott said on Thursday that he has yet to have any discussions with the senior Jones or any other decision-makers regarding the new offensive coordinator.

It’s quite possible that the Cowboys simply haven’t had time to get the gang all together for one big pizza party of a discussion on this issue. The coaching staff is in Orlando for the Pro Bowl while front office figures are in Mobile for the Senior Bowl. Logistically things take time.

If you’re looking for a time when this could all get settled know that Stephen Jones said on Wednesday that he thinks a final decision will be made next week. Time to be patient.
