The Dallas Cowboys made a major coaching move earlier this week, opting to part ways with veteran offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
The move was a bit surprising, as Jason Garrett had previously said that the assistant coaching staff would stay in tact following the 2018 season. Most, though, believed the Cowboys needed a shakeup on the offensive side of the ball. It appears that Jerry Jones and his front office agreed.
Where does the Cowboys' coaching staff go from here?
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport had the latest on the Cowboys and their assistant coaches this morning.
The Cowboys are reportedly looking at bringing in a former NFL quarterback to work with their QBs.
"I’m told they’re considering bringing former QB Jon Kitna in to work with their offense, likely QBs, source said," Rapoport reports.
This could mean that current quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore could get promoted to offensive coordinator.
"One possibility for the Cowboys — and something that allows the Jon Kitna interest to make sense — is to promote fast-rising, impressive QB coach Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator. At the least, that is in the discussions of how to proceed," he added.
The Cowboys are coming off a promising finish to their 2018 season, with ended with a loss to the Rams in the Divisional Round, and hopes are high heading into 2019.
