NFL: Cowboys part ways with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore

The Dallas Cowboys have cut ties with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore after another early elimination.

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday night that “the decision was mutual.” Moore still had a contract year to go. Quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier won’t be back either, as his contract expired.

McCarthy has called games for the majority of his 12-plus seasons as head coach with the Green Bay Packers and he could return to that role with the Cowboys.

McCarthy said he left Moore in charge of plays when he became Cowboys head coach in 2020 because he wanted continuity for quarterback Dak Prescott.

The Cowboys have featured one of the best offenses in the NFL in each of the past two seasons, but they’ve also lacked consistency. They were quickly eliminated in the last two campaigns.

Prescott’s two interceptions impacted the Cowboys’ 19-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend.

In 2021, the Cowboys’ season was halted following a poor offensive performance in a 23-17 loss to the 49ers.

The Dallas squad are currently on a seven-game losing streak in the second round of the playoffs, the longest losing streak since the 1970 merger. The Cowboys haven’t reached the National Conference Finals since their most recent Super Bowl title, 27 years ago.
