The Dallas Cowboys could soon be in need of a new offensive coordinator.

NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that the Carolina Panthers would interview Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore for their head coaching vacancy.

“The Panthers are interviewing Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore for their head coaching job today, per source,” Pelissero tweeted.

The Cowboys originally hired Moore in 2018 as quarterbacks coach before promoting him to offensive coordinator the following season.

The NFL world was quick to react to the major Cowboys news. Most famously was perhaps former Panthers receiver Steve Smith Sr., who opined on the potential hire days before the interview became official:

“We the Panthers interviewed Kellen Moore for the HC job! Based on the last play for the cowboys, Ain’t no way in hell Moore is coaching us with that trash last play!!!!” wrote Smith Sr. on Jan. 22nd following the Cowboys’ last-second loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Cowboys fans seemed to agree with Smith Sr.’s sentiment, saying they would welcome the Panthers hiring their team’s offensive coordinator.

“Please, Carolina, hire him today! Cowboys can then hire Kendal Briles from TCU, giving Sonny Dykes a second chance on hiring an offensive coordinator,” wrote one fan.

“Take him,” tweeted one Cowboys fan.

“Very much, yes,” one fan wrote about Moore’s potential exit in Dallas. “[Cowboys] need a brand new offensive scheme that lets Dake move around.”

“Yes, that way that joke of a last play he called in the SF game will be the last play he ever called,” wrote another Cowboys fan.

“Kellen Moore knows that Dak and the Cowboys can only go so far… he’s a smart man to try and get out,” wrote one Cowboys fan.

Curiously, oddsmakers currently list Moore at +190 to be the next Cowboys head coach if the franchise fires current head coach Mike McCarthy.
