Report: Cowboys QB Coach Kellen Moore Is Top Contender For Offensive Coordinator Position

January 20, 2019 - 12:19 pm

DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - Current Dallas Cowboys quarterback coach and former quarterback, Kellen Moore, is the top contender to fill in the now vacant offensive coordinator position. 

Scott Linehan was released from the Dallas Cowboys as offensive coordinator on Friday after being with the team for five seasons. 

A source from the NFL says former NFL quarterback and current offensive coordinator for the San Diego Fleet, Jon Kitna, may become the Cowboy's quarterback coach if Moore is promoted.

Moore would be an impressive and fast-rising promotion on the team, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport said.
