Dallas Cowboys Offense Says Goodbye Sunnyside, Hello Prosser?
Sunnyside's Scott Linehan is out and now the Dallas Cowboys are reportedly expected to promote quarterbacks coach and Prosser native Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, an official decision has not been made, but signs point toward Moore replacing Scott Linehan following his firing. Under Linehan, Dallas ranked 22nd in the NFL in both total yardage and points scored.
Rapoport added that former Central Washington University, Seattle Seahawks and Cowboys quarterback Jon Kitna is expected to replace Moore as quarterbacks coach, while tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier will have "more influence" and head coach Jason Garrett will have no play-calling responsibility.
Some Dallas diehards are now grumbling Moore will bring a heavy Linehan influence to the offense since Linehan was Moore's offensive coordinator with both the Lions and Cowboys.
And it certainly didn't help fending off the naysayers with Moore calling the plays for the NFC in Sunday's Pro Bowl loss. The NFC scored 7 points. Seven. In the Pro Bowl.
Sure the weather was crappy, but come on. Cowboys fans are openly lamenting that if this is a preview of their approach, how can they not expect more of the same offensive woes in 2019?
