The Dallas quarterback will have to adjust to a new OC in 2023.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will have to adjust to a new play-caller in 2023 after Dallas parted ways with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore earlier this offseason. Though the veteran signal-caller admits he’s discouraged about no longer working with Moore, he wished him the best in his future endeavors.
“I’m upset, but I’m happy for him,” Prescott said this week, according to Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News.
Moore quickly landed back on his feet as he became the offensive coordinator for the Chargers shortly after he and Dallas agreed to mutually part ways. The 34-year-old will now get the chance to coach a star-studded offense in Los Angeles, headlined by quarterback Justin Herbert.
Moore established himself as one of the more intriguing young assistants in the NFL during his time with the Cowboys. After retiring from playing in 2017, he took on the role of quarterbacks coach for Dallas in ’18 before he was promoted to offensive coordinator in ’19.
With Prescott under center, Moore turned the Cowboys into one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL. This past season, Dallas ranked fourth in the league in scoring (27.5 points per game) and 11th in total yards per game (354.9).
However, the Cowboys have yet to advance past the divisional round of the playoffs under head coach Mike McCarthy, which led many to believe some sort of change was necessary in The Star. Moore will now get an opportunity for more success in L.A. while Dallas plans to move forward with McCarthy calling plays.
