The Dallas Cowboys have a new offensive coordinator. After the team decided to move on from former offensive coordinator Scott Linehan following the team's loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round, rumors spread of the Cowboys promoting an in-house candidate to offensive coordinator.

Well, those rumors were confirmed on Thursday afternoon when it was announced that former quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore will be the team's new OC. Moore, just 29 years old, has been with the Cowboys since 2015 when he was signed to the team's practice squad.

After three seasons with the Cowboys as a player, Moore took over as the team's quarterbacks coach for the 2018 season. One season later, he'll be leading the team's offense in the 2019 season.

The Cowboys are also bringing in former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna as the team's quarterbacks coach to serve under Moore.

The former Boise State quarterback became college football's career wins leader during his senior season. Now he'll be leading the offense of America's team.

Moore is expected to call plays for the Cowboys this season after rumors of head coach Jason Garrett potentially playing a role in the offense. He'll be one of the youngest coaches in the NFL to hold a position of such significance.
