Eagles Request Kellen Moore Interview

The Eagles have requested an interview with Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore (Twitter link via Todd Archer of ESPN.com). This marks Moore’s first head coaching interview in the 2021 cycle. 

Moore, 32, inked a three-year extension with the Cowboys towards the close of the season. At the time, he had an opportunity to lead Boise State as their head coach, but chose to stay in Dallas with a pay bump. The ink has barely dried on that re-up, but Moore could still explore other opportunities in the NFL.

The Eagles fired Doug Pederson on Monday, making them the most recent — and likely last — addition to the vacancy pile. So far, they’ve contacted 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady, Titans OC Arthur Smith, Bucs DC Todd Bowles, Patriots assistant Jerod Mayo, and Sooners HC Lincoln Riley.

Injuries to the offensive line and quarterback Dak Prescott hindered the Cowboys this past year. Still, the Cowboys managed to finish top-12 in of total yardage under Moore’s watch.

    I love how the eagles are looking at anyone and everyone. No stone unturned. Eagles looking at a lot of offensive minded coaches.

    Every coach so far that has been connected has zero head coaching experience. Howie and Jeff should just name themselves head coach, OC and DC. Unmitigated Disaster

      1. That’s not true (Todd Bowles)

      2. Why is everyone so obsessed with finding someone with prior experience as a head coach? Not everyone can do that. You have to start somewhere; otherwise, head coaching experience is impossible to gather! Besides, it’s not like the Eagles aren’t looking at anyone promising. Smith did well to coach up Tannehill, Riley has coached Hurts before, and Saleh has done well to develop talent in San Francisco (finished 6th in DVOA this season despite the injuries)

        one also notes most teams are looking at less experienced coaches. its hardly an Eagles thing amd hardly a symptom of anything.

        If you have head coaching experience but are no longer a head coach, doesn’t that typically mean you have been fired?

      The very same thing was said about Andy Reid before the Eagles made him head coach.

    I was a champion at Nintendo Techmo Super Bowl back in 1988. Granted I had Bo Jackson and Marcus Allen in my backfield. That being said, I’m open to being a head coach for the Eagles if they’re looking for an outside the box hire.

      I don’t know you but I will be your referral. I will also be your referral for a job with SF the Rams Cowboys and NY Yankees. I just want the best candidate for those jobs even if they aren’t open.

      I’m sorry but your over qualified for a job with the Eagles.

      Moore is not leaving Dallas he’s the new young Garret who’s next in line to be Jerry’s puppet.
