Las Vegas Raiders: 5 head coaching candidates for 2022
No. 3: Kellen Moore
Kellen Moore looks to have picked up right where he had left off before Dak Prescott went down with an injury.
The Cowboys led the NFL in yards during Moore’s first season as offensive coordinator in 2019, and Prescott was the most efficient quarterback in the NFL before his injury last season. This year, the Cowboys’ offense looks to be better than ever.
When Moore took over the play-calling duties, Dallas became a different football team.
Moore was retained by the Cowboys through the coaching change from Jason Garrett to Mike McCarthy, which further shows the recognizable talent that he has. A new head coach does not typically keep the past offensive coordinator.
That signifies McCarthy felt he couldn’t find anyone better.
Kellen Moore would be a great fit for the Raiders as well. Las Vegas has one of the youngest teams in the league, and Moore, at just 33, would have no problem relating to the players that he would inherit.
If the Cowboys have continued success this season, however, especially on the offensive side of the ball, Moore could be in high demand come the offseason. If the Raiders were to hire Moore, it wouldn’t be unrealistic to assume that they would have to offer him a decent commitment.
There is no doubt, though, that the former Boise State QB would be a great get for the Las Vegas franchise.
