Cowboys Hire Kellen Moore As QBs Coach, Re-Sign RBs Coach Gary Brown

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that they’ve finalized an agreement with Kellen Moore for him to take over as the team’s new QBs coach, per Brandon George.

The Cowboys also re-signed RBs coach Gary Brown and safeties coach Greg Jackson.

 A few weeks ago, Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reported that Moore was retiring from the NFL and will become the Cowboys new quarterbacks coach, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Moore, 28, originally signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State back in 2012. Detroit elected to move on from Moore at the start of the 2015 season and later signed on to the Cowboys’ practice squad.

Moore missed the entire 2016 season with a broken ankle but he returned to Dallas last March. After being waived last October, the Cowboys added him to their practice squad for the remainder of the season.

In 2015, Moore appeared in three games for the Cowboys and completed 58.7 percent of his passes for 779 yards receiving to go along with four touchdowns and six interceptions.
