Cowboys’ Report on Kellen Moore’s Interest in a Top Head Coaching Position.

Kellen Moore, the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys, is allegedly one of several candidates competing for the TCU head coaching job.

Moore’s reps “have reached out” to the university’s hiring committee, according to Chris Hummer of 247Sports, about possibly replacing now-former HC Gary Patterson, who left late last month after a two-decade tenure in Fort Worth.

Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram repeated Moore’s interest in succeeding Paterson on Wednesday.

“A number of prospects have piqued my curiosity. “There’s a long way to go,” a source told Davison, adding that Moore “may be fascinated financially.”

With a $6 million annual pay, Patterson was one of college football’s highest-paid coaches.

According to rumors, Jackson State HC Deion Sanders, SMU HC Sonny Dykes, and Clemson OC Tony Elliott are among the other candidates under consideration for the post.

“(TCU Athletic Director Jeremiah) Donati stated that he hopes to have the process completed and a new coach in place by early December, with the early signing period beginning on December 15,” Davison wrote.

While many see Moore as a potential replacement for Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys would “embrace” an outside opportunity since he “truly wants(s) to be a head coach,” according to team vice president Stephen Jones.

“Well, you always want to keep men who are helping you have success, but we know that’s part of this industry,” Jones stated during an interview on 96.7 The Ticket on October 21, according to Blogging The Boys. “Coach [Bill] Parcells was here,” says the narrator. We have Mike Zimmer and Sean Payton, and those two certainly had their chances to become successful coaches, but the good news is that success on the football usually implies success off the field. So, yes, it happened during our Super Bowl run, when we had players like Butch Davis,… Nokia News – Quick Recap
