Former Cowboys OC Kellen Moore Expected to Become Chargers New Offensive Coordinator
Well, Kellen Moore wasn’t unemployed for long. Last night, we learned last night that Moore and the Cowboys had a mutual parting of ways. And now it appears he will land in Los Angeles to join Brandon Staley and the Chargers.
Ian Rapoport reported this morning that Moore is expected to become the Chargers new offensive coordinator:
Going from Dak Prescott to Justin Herbert in about 12 hours is a pretty nice deal. Staley and the Chargers were looking for a new offensive coordinator after parting ways with Joe Lombardi in the wake of their Wild Card meltdown earlier this month.
According to Rapoport, the Chargers had been working to receive permission to interview Moore for a while now.
Moore and the Cowboys parted ways after things had grown stale in Dallas. However, while things had become stagnant in Dallas, Moore is still viewed as one of the best OCs in the NFL. As a result, Moore now inherits the most attractive OC job in the league.
Moore gets to work with Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler next season. Which will surely be a springboard for Moore in future head coaching cycles. The Chargers’ new OC was a candidate for the Carolina Panthers’ head coaching job this time before the Panthers went with Frank Reich.
Los Angeles needed a spark on offense next season. Moore might be the guy to give it to them. I’m not sure he’ll be there long. Still, it’s an excellent hired for the Chargers right now.
