Cowboys Offensive Coordinator Candidates: Top 8 Ft. Kellen Moore, Pat Shurmur, Ben McAdoo And Jon Kitna

published 2 weeks ago by Chat Sports

The Dallas Cowboys have a new head coach in Mike McCarthy, but who will be their new offensive coordinator? Kellen Moore may or may not stay, but who are the top candidates for Cowboys Offensive Coordinator? Could McCarthy keep Moore and Jon Kitna or will the cowboys be looking for a replacement? Mike McCarthy is reportedly open to keeping Kellen Moore as OC, however, Moore might be moving in a different direction. He has the opportunity to become the University of Washington OC and is “mulling it all over.” McCarthy had praise for a Kellen Moore play call and he’s certainly an upgrade from Scott Linehan. The question is, will he elect to expand his offensive knowledge under McCarthy or join the Washington Huskies? The Cowboys could also look into hiring big name coaches like Pat Shurmur or Ben McAdoo. Shurmur was fired by the Giants after going 4-12 in 2019 but rumor has it that “multiple” teams are interested in him. Ben McAdoo, on the other hand, has coached offensive line, tight ends and quarterbacks in addition to his experience as an offensive coordinator and head coach. Both Shurmur and McAdoo make some sense for the Cowboys. There aren’t many truly available coaches out there, but Redskins OC Kevin O’Connell is. Could he be a target? Cowboys rumors have also linked multiple former Packers coaches to the offensive coordinator job. Alex Van Pelt is currently the Bengals QB coach, was on staff with McCarthy back in Green Bay and had a very strong relationship with Aaron Rodgers. If McCarthy is looking to duplicate results with Rodgers and Prescott, Pelt might be the guy for the job. Joe Philbin, long-time Packers assistant, is another name to consider. However, if McCarthy is serious about proving he’s evolved and changed, hiring his old offensive coordinator probably isn’t the best idea.
