According to rumours, a Dallas Cowboys assistant may be interested in Minnesota Vikings head coaching position.
The Minnesota Vikings had a disappointing season, failing to reach the Super Bowl, and Mike Zimmer as head coach. Rick Spielman was also fired. With the current players, the Vikings make a great job for head coaches.
A rumor stemming from Minnesota sports radio host Judd Zulgad suggests that Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has interest in Minnesota’s head coaching job.
Cowboys assistant interested to be Vikings head coach?
Moore is certainly a popular name in this year’s head coaching cycle, and for good reason. This season, the Cowboys offense ranks first in the league for total yards per match (407.0) as well as points per game (31.2). Simply put, Prescott has seen the best of his quarterback in his recovery from a serious ankle injury sustained in 2020. He also has their full wide receiver corps (Amari cooper, CeeDee lamb, Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson).
The situation for the Vikings is similar to that of the Cowboys, except for the offensive line which is still in development. The real question is what Moore would do at the quarterback spot, as Kirk Cousins enters the last year of his contract. They also have Kellen Mond (2021 third-rounder) on the roster.
Getting Moore could be difficult for Minnesota, since he already interviewed for the Jacksonville Jaguars’ head coaching vacancy and has been requested to speak with the Denver Broncos. He could add to his list as there are open positions on the Chicago Bears (Miami Dolphins) and New York Giants. Since Rich Bisaccia, interim head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, led them to a playoff berth, the job for the Raiders is in doubt.
