Kellen Moore Retiring To Become Cowboys’ QBs Coach


Alex Marvez of the Sporting News reports that veteran QB Kellen Moore is retiring from the NFL and will become the Cowboys new quarterbacks coach.

Wade Wilson, who has been the Cowboys’ quarterback coach in recent years, is about to become a free agent and there’s been a lot of talk that Dallas was not going to renew his contract.

Marvez points out that Moore has intimate knowledge of OC Scott Linehan’s offensive system, making him an obvious candidate for the job.

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.
