Kellen Moore, Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator
At only 33 years old, I believe Kellen Moore is going to be a hot commodity in the coaching market come this offseason. He epitomizes what organizations are and have been looking for when determining the future of their franchise: young & upcoming offensive minds.
Ever since taking over in 2019 as the Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator, his offense has put up numbers. In 2019, the Dallas Cowboys had the top 1 offense in terms of yards per game and a top 6 scoring offense. In 2020, those numbers dropped but that was in large part due to the injury sustained by quarterback Dak Prescott. Now, in 2021 Moore once again has this offense first in total yards per game and second in scoring offense.
What surprised me the most about Moore was that he was retained when Dallas hired Mike McCarthy in 2020. Typically, when a new coach comes in, they clean house and bring in their own coordinators with them. But, the rapport Moore had with this Dallas offense was obvious. Now, one can certainly make an argument that he inherited a top offensive line, coupled with Zeke, Amari Cooper and then eventually, CeeDee Lamb. Quite frankly, he would be doing the same in Seattle, minus the offensive line, and he has shown what he is capable of doing.
Unlike Russell Wilson, many already believe that Dak Prescott has reached his potential and thus, holds back this Dallas offense in a sense. With someone as accurate as Wilson, who knows what else is in pandora’s box for Moore if he were to take over the Seattle Seahawks. He would certainly be able to dive deeper into his creative mind as Wilson is dynamic enough to use both his arm and legs. I think it would be really exciting to see Seattle hire a progressive young and upcoming offensive-minded coach.
