Chicago Bears: Introducing three potential replacement head coaches
By Ryan Olson
Chicago Bears Replacement Coach No. 2: Kellen Moore
Kellen Moore, who had been a backup QB for his NFL tenure as a player, has broken onto the scene in 2021. This has to do with the Dallas offense that has been dynamite under him. Moore was in consideration for the Phillidelphia coaching job last spring but it never came together as we can only assume that experience was a factor.
Moore’s offense is almost perfectly balanced as the Cowboys have shown that they can throw it and run it at an elite level. One of the most appealing things for me that I see from Moore is that he takes whatever the defense gives them.
If the defense goes heavy to stop the run, he will set the offense up to pass almost seamlessly. Moore is also partly responsible for the great improvement we have seen with Dak Prescott as Prescott has flourished under Moore’s offense. We could see Fields take the same steps that Dak did under Moore if they were to unite in the offseason, as Fields and Prescott are similar players arm talent-wise.
Kellen Moore is my personal favorite for the job but I am skeptical of the Bears to go out and get him as he has only been coaching in the NFL for three years and is 35 years old. But the incredible scheme and playcalling are enough for me to take that leap of faith and make him the newest Bears coach.
