Moore, 30, 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 in 2017, the Cowboys added him to their practice squad for the remainder of the season.

Moore made the decision to join the Cowboys as their QBs coach and end his playing career in 2018. Dallas later promoted him to offensive coordinator for the 2019 season. 

In 2019, the Cowboys’ offense ranked No. 1 in total yards, No. 6 in points scored, No. 5 in rushing yards and No. 2 in passing yards.

Nolan, 60, began his NFL coaching career with the Broncos as their special teams/linebackers coach back in 1987.

Since then, Nolan has worked for several teams including the Giants, Redskins, Jets, Ravens 49ers, Dolphins, Falcons and the Chargers before the Saints hired him as their linebackers coach in 2017. 

During his stint as 49ers’ head coach, Nolan led the team to a record of 18-37 over the course of 55 games.
