The Carolina Panthers have had more time than any other team in the NFL to scout their potential head coaching candidates. But it seems a popular candidate quickly “overwhelmed” him.
According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Panthers are focused on hiring an experienced head coach in the vein of Frank Reich or Steve Wilkes. However, one candidate has really impressed him so far: Kellen Moore.
The Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator has been one of the hottest names in coaching for many years, but has narrowly missed out on the top job over the years. With the work he has done on the Cowboys offense, it is clear that he is no one-hit wonder.
The Panthers have cast a huge net in the coaching ranks with plenty of rising stars as well as popular seasoned coaches already having interviews. Moore will be on the younger, less experienced side, but it appears he’s not long for the job this time around.
Kellen Moore joined the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff as QBs coach in 2018 after retiring from the previous season. He was immediately promoted to offensive coordinator the following year and has served in the role through 2019.
Under Moore’s watch, the Cowboys have had two of their highest-scoring seasons in franchise history and made the playoffs twice.
But Moore won’t be able to bring many of Dallas’ star players with him to Carolina or elsewhere if he is hired. He must prove that he can win with above-average talent if he wants to have a successful career as a head coach.
Will Kellen Moore Be The Next Panthers Head Coach? If not him, then who?
