It looks like Kellen Moore, the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, may be retained after weeks of uncertainty.
The former quarterback has been interviewed for head coaching positions with the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins. Based on anonymous league sources, Aaron Wilson, an NFL insider, reported that Moore is not expected to be hired for a new job during this hiring cycle.
Wilson writes that Moore presented well at interviews. “But at least one committee was unsure if Moore has the leadership and commanding personality to grab attention of players and stand before an entire team. This means that Moore will return to the Cowboys in 2022.
Wilson’s report seems like it will provide a definitive answer, but the Cowboys still have a long way to go before they can be considered a winner. For teams looking for new leadership, Dan Quinn, defensive coordinator, is still an excellent candidate.
Dan Quinn is the most sought-after name in NFL head coaching search. The Chicago Bears have many candidates, but it seems like the Cowboys’ defensive coach has a chance to end up in the Windy City.
“The Bears will request 2nd interviews with 2 additional candidates #Cowboys & ex-#Lions Coach Jim Caldwell,” Ian Rappaport tweeted Monday. Per @TomPelissero, #Colts Matt Eberflus will have his second interview on Wednesday. #Saints DC Dennis Allen will be interviewing tomorrow.
It seems almost certain that the former Atlanta Falcons front man will lead another NFL team in 2022.
Quinn was interviewed Monday for the New York gig. ESPN’s Ed Werder claims that Quinn, Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, could be interested in the Giants. Quinn was raised in Morristown New Jersey.
The Cowboys were astonished by Dan Quinn. Quinn’s first season in Dallas saw him rebuild his brand with his revitalization of the defense.
