Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has completed an interview with the Panthers at their head coach’s opening, ESPN’s Todd Archer reports. Moore spent two days in the Carolinas.
Former Colts head coach Frank Rich and Panthers head coach Steve Wilkes also completed second interviews with the team.
Six others have received initial interest, including former Saints head coach Sean Payton, and 49ers’ defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans remains on the team’s roster but is not available to meet the Panthers until after the San Francisco season ends.
Moore played three seasons with the Cowboys before joining their coaching staff as linebackers coach in 2018. He was promoted to offensive coordinator the following season and has remained in that position, even after the change in coaches prior to the 2020 season.
Twice in his four seasons as coordinator, the Cowboys have ranked first in total yards. They finished first in points scored in 2021 and two more times in the top six, including fourth this season.
Moore interviewed for head coaching jobs last year, but the Panthers are the first team he talks to this offseason.
