Kellen Moore instructed Cowboys he was 1st runner-up for Panthers HC job

On Thursday afternoon, the Carolina Panthers gave their gold medal to Frank Reich—naming him their new and sixth full-time head coach in franchise historical past. So, who obtained the silver?

In line with Kellen Moore, it was Kellen Moore.

Panthers beat author Sheena Fast reported that the 34-year-old offensive coordinator instructed his present employer, the Dallas Cowboys, that the job got here all the way down to him and Reich. Oh, and it’s additionally price mentioning that Moore could not have a present employer fairly quickly—as Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy can be assembly together with his play caller for an evaluation.

This may imply that proprietor David Tepper and his search committee most well-liked Moore over Steve Wilks, who was presumed as the primary of two finalists for the emptiness. Wilks—in his spectacular 12-game run because the crew’s interim head coach this previous season—rapidly grew to become a participant and fan favourite for his trustworthy and inspirational fashion of management.

However, given Tepper’s longstanding interest in an offensive-minded coach, this wouldn’t be essentially the most surprising of developments.
