Cooper Rush beat out Kellen Moore for the Cowboys’ backup quarterback job in 2017. Now, Moore is Rush’s position coach.

“The best thing about it is we have a good relationship,” Rush said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He will be very easy to work with. Both me and Dak [Prescott] trust him a lot. I know he is excited about it, and so am I.

“I love Kellen and so does he. Kellen has that good relationship with us. He communicates things really well. He will simplify whatever needs to be simplified and give us the best chance.”

Prescott said after the Cowboys hired Moore as quarterbacks coach that he “pushed for that” and expects Moore’s presence to “benefit” him.

Moore, 29, replaces Wade Wilson, who was not retained after his contract expired.

  1. He can’t be any worse than their past qb coaches. What do they have, two playoff wins since the late 90’s?

  2. The Cowboys love hiring their former backup QBs to coach. None have had blistering success yet, but I like the MO. Respected, team-oriented, good-attitude players get a continued opportunity to contribute.

    And an average of .500 each season to boot. But they make a lot of headlines; that counts for something, right?

    Money, and lots of it. I however would prefer wins, Jerry does not agree with me tho.

  5. How much worse could Kellen do than Wade Wilson, You see how many
    teams ran out to sign Wade up as their QB coach.

  6. Hmmm, let me see. Many teams that have been successful have QB coaches who are so accomplished and experienced that THEY are being considered for Offensive Coordinator positions. Some even having served as OC or higher positions before.

    the Cowboys who with Kellen in the QB room, already saw a bit of a lack of growth on Dak’s part and the Cowboys answer if to hire a first time coach and allow him to be THE guy developing your young QB. Hmmm. He may be nice and he may be a good teacher-BUT TEACH WHAT? is the think. Too little exposure to greatness to even begin to pass it on to Dak. Why not bring in an experienced, accomplished, proven QB coach and let Kellen intern or assist him for a year and see what Kellen has and then hire him.

    That QB room just became a bunch of buddies hanging out together. This one is a head scratcher for sure!!! There is such a thing as too MUCH loyalty for people you “like” and that is what the Cowboys are suffering with these days of the Jones Jr. regime. This is why we lose so much when we should be winning. Purposefully hiring weak links instead of “ballers” just like the players we covet.

    There is no salary cap for coaches so what is the problem. RISKY MOVE. I DONT LIKE IT ONE BIT!!! Im sure Dak would have preferred a Matt Cavanaugh or someone like that to coach him.
