With the departure of Gary Patterson after 22 seasons at the helm, TCU is exploring possibilities as potential replacements to serve as their next head coach.

Via Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star Telegram, TCU is interested in Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore among numerous candidates for the position.

Moore interviewed for the Philadelphia Eagles head coaching job last year in addition to the opening at his alma mater, Boise State. The dalliance with Boise State led Moore to get a multi-year extension to remain with the Cowboys.

The Cowboys appear enamored with Moore and believe highly in his trajectory as a coach. Dallas ranks as the league’s best offense in total yards and is third in points scored through their first seven games of the season with Moore running the offense.

Other candidates mentioned for the job include Deion Sanders, currently at Jackson State, SMU’s Sonny Dykes, UTSA’s Jeff Traylor, Louisiana’s Billy Napier, Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott and Denver Broncos running backs coach Curtis Modkins.

  1. TCU is a great school but they are not the great football program they were even 5 years ago let alone 20 years ago. Furthermore they are in a sinking ship of a conference with Texas and OU bailing. I don’t think Kellen Moore will be back next year but it won’t be for this job

  2. Moore can have his pick of NFL jobs in a couple of years, why would he drop down to a 2nd tier college?

  3. NFL teams will be looking at Kellen to fill their Head Coach. Hell Mike McCarthy might be available.

  4. Kellen Moore was across the sideline from his future employer Sunday night.

  5. McCarthy is gonna botch clock management and cost the Cowboys a Playoff game. Jerry will fire him and hand the job over to Moore. That writing is on the wall.
