Boise State alum, Dallas Cowboys OC Kellen Moore makes decision on coaching future
As Boise State continues to look for a replacement for new Auburn coach Bryan Harsin, one prominent name can be crossed off the list.
Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has reportedly said that he would stay in the NFL instead of returning to his alma mater. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Moore has bypassed the opportunity, and Football Scoop reported that former Florida assistant Jeff Choate, now the head coach at Montana State coach had been vetted by the Broncos and was expected to be interviewed by Broncos officials.
Choate is an Idaho native and coached for several seasons under Chris Peterson at Boise State as special teams and running backs coach starting in 2006, and then shifted to linebackers coach. He was Florida’s linebackers and special teams coach in 2013, then reunited with Petersen before he landed at Montana State ahead of the 2016 season.
Boise on Saturday announced it had hired Jeramiah Dickey as its new athletics director after Dickey had spent almost the last four years as Baylor University’s associate vice president for athletics. Multiple reports suggested that Boise wanted to make the AD hire before the football coach hire.
Kellen Moore will remain as the Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator in 2021, bypassing an opportunity to return to his alma mater at Boise St as HC, per league sources to @WerderEdESPN and me.
Cowboys expect to sign Moore to an extension, per sources.
