Kellen Moore is no longer a candidate for the job of TCU’s head football coach. In a statement, TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte announced that he decided to go in another direction with his search for new leadership on Sunday night following “a major disappointment.” The decision comes after an ESPN report on Friday detailed allegations from former players about Moore being repeatedly drunk during games and practices while serving as Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator before taking over at TCU last year.,
The “kellen moore” is a man that has been the quarterbacks coach for the Dallas Cowboys since 2010. He was recently removed from consideration for the job at TCU.
Kellen Moore isn’t going anywhere with the Dallas Cowboys. Not yet, at least.
The prolific offensive coordinator is “no longer a contender” to replace Gary Patterson as TCU’s next head coach, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Moore is anticipated to seek NFL chances following the season, according to the article.
Moore’s reps were said to have “reached out” to the Horned Frogs’ hiring committee and that the 33-year-old “might be fascinated from a financial aspect,” since Patterson was one of college football’s highest-paid coaches, earning $6 million per year.
Moore, on the other hand, put an end to such speculations, saying during his Monday news conference that he hasn’t given any attention to NCAA head-coaching openings.
According to the Dallas Morning News, he stated, “I don’t care about any of that stuff.” Dave Dunn, the [agent], is in charge of this. He does an outstanding job with it.”

Moore Isn’t Going to Hurt NFL Suitors
Moore, one of the game’s finest brains, gained HC interest earlier this year after interviewing with both his former institution, Boise State, and NFC East foe Philadelphia Eagles. He finally decided to remain in Dallas for the 2021 season, and the Cowboys rewarded him with a contract extension.
Moore, if he chooses to leave the Chiefs, will be a highly sought-after commodity on the NFL market, arguably the biggest fish in a pond that could include Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, and possibly even Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.
The Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, Chicago Bears, New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, and Miami Dolphins are among the clubs that might look into the market for their next leader of men in the coming months.
Moore, according to The Sporting News’ Vinnie Iyer, is the wunderkind calling the plays for Dak Prescott and Dallas’ dynamic, balanced, and flexible assault. “Whether or whether Carr is still in the driver’s seat next season, he can add a lot more potential to the Raiders’ offensive firepower.” Moore, like Bieniemy, is a native West Coaster who should find the early move to the glitzy desert enticing.”

Moore assesses Dak’s performance against the Broncos.
The TCU study was released only hours after Moore’s squad was thwarted by the Denver Broncos in a surprising 30-16 defeat at AT&T Stadium, ending a six-game winning run.
Apart from multiple mistakes and failed blocking assignments, the most egregious failure on Sunday was that of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott, who completed fewer than half of his throws and was kept off the scoring until the fourth quarter… with Denver ahead 30-0.
Prescott’s inaccuracy was highlighted by his failure to connect on many long balls in his return to play after a one-week break. Moore, on the other hand, minimized any rust-inhibiting Dak when pressed and, rather than pointing the finger, blamed himself.
“I don’t want to blame it entirely on it,” he told beat reporter Brianna Dix on Monday. “Did he miss a few of throws?” Yeah. Is it possible that I called certain plays that I wish I hadn’t? Yeah. I believe we all received a bit of what we’re allowed to take. Hopefully, there will be a lot of room for expansion.”
