Dak Prescott comments on Kellen Moore situation
Dak Prescott apparently wasn’t happy with a coaching change after the season. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore was fired following the Dallas Cowboys’ heartbreaking loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round.
The Cowboys promoted Brian Schottenheimer to replace Moore with the title of offensive coordinator. However, reports have come out that head coach Mike McCarthy will call offensive plays next season. McCarthy wants more control of the Cowboys’ offense. Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones said McCarthy appreciated Moore, but the two had irreconcilable differences in their approach to football philosophy.
Dak Prescott recently spoke to the media about what he thought of Moore’s firing. The Cowboys quarterback didn’t seem too pleased. According to Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News, Prescott said he was “upset” Moore would not be with the team in 2023:
“I’m upset, but I’m happy for him,” Prescott said.
Moore quickly found a job with the Los Angeles Chargers.
McCarthy will try to lead the Cowboys to higher highs than the previous two years. Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn announced he’d return for the 2023 season with the same mission as McCarthy. The Cowboys won a playoff game this season but again fell short of getting to the NFC Championship Game. McCarthy was roasted after the game for a questionable play at the end of the game.
Owner Jerry Jones was visibly emotional after the loss to the 49ers. The Cowboys will have to watch their divisional rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, play in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
