A bit of time has passed since the Dallas Cowboys fired Scott Linehan from his post as the team’s offensive coordinator, but ultimately time stops for no one and that includes America’s Team. There’s a new offensive coordinator in town as the Cowboys have officially promoted Kellen Moore to the position.
Moore has been rumored to be getting the promotion from quarterbacks coach (his first, and so far, only position as an NFL coach) to the man in charge of the offense for a few weeks and now it is happening. This felt inevitable and at long last Dallas has tied the knot with one of their own.

There are reasons to feel optimistic about Moore having the keys to the Cowboys offense. Dak Prescott has spoken very highly of him, his opinion is sort of important, and Moore has always been regarded for his bright mind. This is an extremely large responsibility and considering Jason Garrett may be entering a contract year when it’s all said and done, it’s an awfully bold roll of the dice for him to make which suggests that he is quite confident in it.
Dallas has already added Jon Kitna to their staff and now they have officially defined that role as well. Kitna will serve as the team’s quarterbacks coach which means this gives the Cowboys three former quarterbacks on the same staff of the team they played for in Kitna, Moore, and Garrett… it’s become quite the “family” business.
