Dallas Cowboys’ attitude towards attack coordinator Kellen Moore is business as usual.
When meeting with the media on Thursday, Mike McCarthy, the team’s new manager, said Moore would continue to be in charge of the team’s offensive tactical command. Moore played the same role last season under manager Jason Garrett.
“I am confident that Karen will still be in charge of tactical command. This is our plan for the future, “McCarthy said. He also plans to keep the offensive team’s tactical language consistent.
According to Ian Rapoport, a reporter with NFL television network, making sure Moore continues to be in charge of tactical command is one of the ways Cowboys make sure he stays. Moore had thought about becoming an offensive coordinator at the University of Washington, but McCarthy and Jerry Jones, the cowboy boss, kept him.
In this season, Moore’s first year as attack coordinator, cowboy’s total offensive yards ranked first in the league, averaging 27.1 points per game, ranking sixth in the league. The quarterback, dak Prescott, hit career best with 4902 yards and 30 passes.
During his 13 years in charge of Green Bay Packers, McCarthy spent most of his time directing offensive tactics. Now his willingness to cede that power to Moore is a very important change. Now cowboys are still building coaching teams.
