Cowboys, OC Kellen Moore part ways after four seasons

Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and the Dallas Cowboys mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced.

The Cowboys announced Moore's departure Sunday night. The former NFL quarterback joined the staff as a quarterbacks coach in 2018. He spent the last three seasons as the Cowboys offensive coordinator.


"After continuing through our end of season review process and having additional discussion, Kellen and the Cowboys reached a mutual decision to part ways," Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said in a news release. "I want to thank Kellen for his deep commitment, hard work and dedication that were a core part of his time with the Cowboys.

"The production of our offense and his mentorship of Dak Prescott were at the center of Kellen's impact, and we are grateful for his tenure and leadership. We wish Kellen and his wife, Julie, and their family the absolute best as they set out on the next chapter of their lives."

They ranked No. 11 in yards in 2022, with the No. 14 passing offense and No. 9 rushing offense.
