On Thursday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys reportedly hired Kellen Moore to be the team's new offensive coordinator. The news took the NFL world by storm and the reactions were mixed to say the least.
After serving as the Cowboys quarterbacks coach for just one season, Moore has been tabbed to lead the offense in 2019. Not only that, but at just 29 years old, Moore becomes the youngest offensive coordinator in the NFL - by four years.
Despite his lack of experience as a coach in the NFL, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has faith in Moore as a coach.
"He’s honestly one of these young genius phenoms in the game. ... He’s special. He knows a lot about the game, just the way he sees the game, the way he’s ahead of the game. He can bring a lot to us, a lot of creativity," Prescott said about his new offensive coordinator.
Moore worked closely with Prescott in 2018 as the team's quarterbacks coach and will now be calling the plays for Prescott and the rest of the offense in the upcoming season.
The team also brought in former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna as the quarterbacks coach.
Will we finally see some creativity from the Cowboys on the offensive side of the ball?
