The Dallas Cowboys are set to retain Dan Quinn as their defensive coordinator as he has opted to remove himself from the running as it pertains to the NFL’s coaching carousel.
Head coach Mike McCarthy was pleased to learn of Quinn’s decision but did not seem as excited over the situation with the team’s offensive coordinator when he spoke to reporters on Thursday.
McCarthy was non-commital on Kellen Moore, refusing to confirm that Moore will be back next season, per Ed Werder of ESPN.
Moore has not gotten hired as a head coach, though he was interviewed by the Carolina Panthers, and it appears that the door is closed in that regard. But, should the Cowboys decide to move on from him, he will have plenty of suitors looking to appoint him as their OC.
The Cowboys had a good thing going this season; that is until they lost to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Quinn’s done a splendid job with the defense, but it’s not more than you can say for Moore and the offense. He was excellent too.
The Cowboys were No. 3 in offense this season, only behind the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, and were No. 1 last year. Moore certainly can’t be blamed for the team’s playoff exit as that was down to individual errors and some strange decisions from McCarthy himself.
If the Cowboys do choose to sever ties with the 34-year-old, he will not be out of a job for very long.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
