It could be student versus teacher if Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys take on the Chicago Bears as planned in 2022.

That’s because Kellen Moore, the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, has been named by the Sporting News as a potential candidate to replace embattled Bears head coach Matt Nagy, whose pink panties are expected after the season (if not sooner).

“There have been some comparisons between [Justin] Fields and Dak Prescott, so why not reach out to the game caller who turned Prescott into an elite passerby with the double threat of running in his back pocket? ”Columnist Vinnie Iyer wrote on Thursday, November 25th. “Moore may be too young, but it might also be time for a real hot shot in Chicago to get his chance. Moore is an adult and has studied well under Super Bowl winner Mike McCarthy. “

As the brains behind the NFL’s top offensive (in total yards), Moore is one of, if not the most sought-after assistants the sport has to offer. Despite the consistent rejection of all interests, the 33-year-old is regularly associated with head coaching positions and related rumors.

Earlier this month, Texas Christian University flirted with Moore about their HC opening only to get the child prodigy game caller politely declined the opportunity, claiming he hadn’t considered possible promotions.

“Not a little,” Moore said aloud on November 8th Dallas Morning News, added, “I’m not worried about any of that. That is [agent] Dave Dunn’s job. He’s doing a great job with it. “

For what it’s worth, however, Moore has hinted that at some point he – ultimately – like to tread the HC path, be it in Dallas or with another organization. And the cowboy bream, they claim, won’t get in his way.

“Well, you always want to keep people to help you succeed, but at the same time we know that’s part of that business,” said Team Vice President Stephen Jones during an October 21 interview on 96.7 The Ticket about blogging The Boys. “Coach [Bill] Packages were here. We had Mike Zimmer and Sean Payton and certainly these guys had their chances to go ahead and become successful coaches, but the good news is that you can usually be successful on the field. So it certainly happened when we had our Super Bowl run when we had guys like Butch Davis and Dave [Wannstedt] Opportunities to get. Norv Turner gets chances. That comes with success.

“So part of you are hoping you will overcome this challenge, but at the same time you hate losing people who are doing a great job for you, but hopefully we’ll do our job. We have people on our team who can move up if they get the chance they really want as head coach.

Moore isn’t the only assistant drawing outside of the coaching appeal. Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News reported On Monday, November 22nd, Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Dan Quinn emerged as a “potential” candidate to succeed former University of Southern California HC Clay Helton, who was relieved of his duties in September.

Wilner spread the rumor about a “trusted” source by citing Quinn’s connections with ex-Trojan HC Pete Carroll and his tenure as head of the Atlanta Falcons, a title he held from 2015-2020.

“Worth monitoring there [the] The search is getting hot, ”tweeted Wilner.

Quinn’s unit is largely superior and occupies eighth place in scoring and 10th against the run, which is in the 12th solo tackles (48), tackles for loss (13) and sacks (8).

“He lets me use my speed and play recklessly,” Parsons said of Quinn in October on the team’s official website. “He lets me play out my strengths.”
