With Mike McCarthy absent due to COVID-19, the Dallas Cowboys have chosen to assign Dan Quinn the role of interim head coach. They missed the mark.
Quinn has some head coaching experience, formerly with the Atlanta Falcons. So on the surface, it makes sense that Cowboys wanted someone who was there and did it, to take over McCarthy in this one-game scenario.
“Clearly he has head coaching experience while on the pitch and has also called defending and managing a game,” McCarthy said. “I think Dan is down there, as far as our regular game-managing, clock-managing network goes, all of that would be right.”
However, despite all of that, the Cowboys are missing out on the opportunity to see what they have at Kellen Moore.
Cowboys: Will Kellen Moore make a good head coach?
Moore is only 33 years old, so he is quite young and inexperienced. However, he has received some interest for head coach gigs.
The former Boise State quarterback has set all sorts of college admission records, though his career never turned pro. However, that hasn’t stopped him from making a huge impact as a coach.
The Cowboys’ attack has improved significantly under Moore, except for the time he was without a reliable passer when Dak Prescott fell last year. Assuming he can engage a good offensive system, there’s no saying Moore is capable with a full arsenal and assistant trainer at his disposal.
And who knows? With Moore a potential coach waiting both in Dallas and elsewhere, the Cowboys should give him this opportunity to prove he can handle the stresses of being an all-around head coach. time. Instead, they will go with Quinn.
But don’t make fun of yourself, Quinn isn’t the Cowboys’ next head coach, no matter how things turn out. Moore, meanwhile, has some potential down the line.
