The Dallas Cowboys are in the market for a new offensive coordinator. Scott Linehan was dismissed last week after holding the position since 2015.

Reports on Sunday indicated the team was considering promoting quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore to OC. Moore played for the Cowboys from 2015-17 and was added to the coaching staff before this season.

Additionally, another former Dallas quarterback, Jon Kitna, has returned to the team and was named quarterbacks coach. However, the Cowboys have still not named a new offensive coordinator.

At the Senior Bowl today in Mobile, Ala., Jerry Jones said no decision on the position is "imminent."

Whoever takes over as Dallas' OC, it looks like their responsibilities won't include play calling. A report on Sunday stated that head coach Jason Garrett is expected to call plays in 2019.

Dallas finished this season 10-6 and won the NFC East. It was the franchise's third division title in the last five seasons under Garrett.

In the playoffs, Dallas won a home Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks before falling to the eventual NFC champion Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round.
