Mike McCarthy would like Kellen Moore to stay with the Cowboys as OC
Update on #Cowboys OC Kellen Moore: New coach Mike McCarthy would like him to stay and remain OC, which may also help Moore learn a new system. But he also has an opportunity to go back home and become the University of Washington OC under Jimmy Lake. He is mulling it all over.

Rapoport also throws in an interesting nugget that he also has an offer to be the offensive coordinator for the University of Washington under Jimmy Lake. Moore was born in Washington, so it would make sense that he might want to go home and be closer to where he grew up.
If he were to stay with the Cowboys, it would probably require him to adapt to a new system. Under Jason Garrett, he was able to create his offense, and at times, he showed flashes of being one of the better young offensive coordinators in the league.
With McCarthy, he will want to implement his own offensive system, meaning Moore probably wouldn’t be able to put as much of his creative stamp on it.
If he is allowed to have more of a say with the Huskies, it would probably make a lot of sense for him to go back home, especially if he wants to be a college head coach at some point.
No matter what job he takes, he is still an up and coming coach, and he might not be an offensive coordinator that much longer. If he continues to have success, it’s only a matter of time before he gets an offer to be a head coach, either in the NFL or the college ranks.
