Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Kellen Moore – Stock Up

About two months ago, I brought up Kellen Moore as a potential head coaching candidate for the Chicago Bears should they move on from Matt Nagy before the start of the 2022 season. Moore is easily within my top five wants when it comes to potential new head coaches. The biggest knock on him is his lack of experience. He has only been an offensive coordinator for three seasons — all with the Dallas Cowboys.

At only 32 years old, Moore has been one of the best offensive minds in the NFL and has done a great job not only with the Cowboys’ offense but Dak Prescott specifically. If we look at his body of work, the Cowboys’ offense ranked first in yards in 2019 and currently is leading in 2021. The team was sixth in points in 2019 and is currently second in points right now.

You might be wondering why I didn’t mention the 2020 season. Well, it needs its own category. Don’t forget, Dak Prescott missed a large portion of the 2020 season. However, even without Prescott (Andy Dalton was the starter), the team was 14th in yards and 17th in points. Do you know how amazing it would feel if the Chicago Bears were ranked 14th or 17th in anything relating to the offense?

Kellen Moore might not be experienced, but the little experience he does have is filled with successes. The question is, will the Cowboys let him leave?
