Report: Former Cowboys QB Kellen Moore leading candidate for OC job


The Cowboys have a former Dallas quarterback as head coach and could have another as their offensive coordinator.

Kellen Moore, a backup quarterback for the Cowboys from 2015-17, is a leading candidate to be promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Head coach Jason Garrett would be more involved in the play-calling, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen adds.

The Cowboys parted ways with Scott Linehan, their offensive coordinator of the past four years, on Friday.

It would be a precipitous rise for Moore. He was a post-draft signing by the Detroit Lions in 2012 but never played for the team in three seasons. He played in three total games for the Cowboys before transitioning to coaching this year.

The Cowboys had the league’s 22nd-ranked offense in 2018, averaging 21.2 points per game.

Manziel ahead of first CFL start Friday: ‘It’s good to be back in here’


Johnny Manziel spoke to the media on Tuesday for the first time as the starting quarterback of the Montreal Alouettes.

Manziel will start on Friday against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and play in a professional football game for the first time since December 2015.

“It’s good to be back in here,” Manziel said, according to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert. “I felt like the thing I’ve been missing, even over the course of this year and a couple years, is reps. And as you guys have seen the last couple days, a chance to get with the 1s and get some reps is what I feel like I really need and what I’ve talked to a lot of people about.”

Manziel, who’s trying to restart a once-promising football career, signed with the Tiger-Cats in May. He didn’t play for Hamilton and was traded to Montreal on July 22. The 25-year-old watched one Als game from the bench before being named Friday’s starter.

“I feel very blessed to be in this position, to be back in a situation where I’m starting again,” he said. “It’s good. It’s a quick turnaround. But at the same time, I’m excited for the opportunity.”

Manziel will be leading a one-win team tied for last in the CFL standings. The Tiger-Cats have a 2-4 record this season.
