Add the Dolphins to the list of teams interested in speaking to Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore about their head coaching vacancy.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins have requested an interview with Moore. The Jaguars and Broncos have also shown interest in Moore since firing their head coaches.

Reports about the Dolphins’ decision to fire Brian Flores on Monday have centered on his strained relationships with others in the building. That included his relationship with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who would have one clear bond with Moore if the two men wound up working together.

Moore was the last left-handed quarterback to throw a pass in an NFL game before Tagovailoa entered the league in 2020. That’s unlikely to be enough to make him the choice, but it does give him a different perspective on a player whose name figures to come up in the interview process.

  1. Why would the Dolphins want to take another chance on a coordinator becoming a head coach? It’s not the same job. The Dolphins with their cap space and draft picks are a team that is poised to break out.

  2. I really like Moore but I’m not sure that he is yet ready to be a HC. Reminds me of the OC from New England. Product of supporting cast players and coaches surrounding him. JMO.

  3. I like it. The offense was the weak link of the team. Moore’s play-calling would bring in much-needed offensive creativity and maximize Tua’s skills.

  4. I think they need an experienced HC to steady the ship as they have just missed the playoffs in the last 2 seasons. Kevin o’Connell is the only non HC I would consider. If they fix the OL that woud help as first priority.
