NFL World Speculating About Kellen Moore's Future

The Dallas Cowboys are 2-1 after last night's drubbing of the Philadelphia Eagles. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has been stellar through three weeks.

Moore has made good use of the bevy of offensive weapons at his disposal this season, and his play calling and overall offensive scheme has been outstanding. In his third season as OC, Moore is already being speculated as a future head coach.

In fact, some of the talk on social media during and after last night's game was that Moore will be running his own team sooner rather than later. There's a chance it could be the Cowboys too, if Jerry Jones decides to get rid of Mike McCarthy and promote the 33-year-old coordinator.

We've seen Jerry make this type of move before back in 2010, when he dumped Wade Phillips and promoted offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Of course, the Cowboys were 1-7 when Phillips got the boot, so McCarthy would likely have to lose a bunch of games this year before Jones considers such a change for 2022.

It is worth noting that as Moore's star continues to rise, it will become harder for Dallas to keep him unless they promote him to the top spot.

Will that reality force Jerry Jones' hand? Stay tuned.
