Kellen Moore will remain as the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, agreeing to a multiyear deal on Saturday night.
Dallas didn’t reveal the length of the contract, but a source said it’s a three-year deal.
In a statement released by the Cowboys, Moore stated he would no longer pursue the Boise State head-coaching job. He was almost immediately linked to the opening after Bryan Harsin left for Auburn. Moore had a record-setting career as quarterback for the Broncos from 2008 to 2011, winning 50 games in four campaigns.
“I love Boise State. I will always root for them, and I hope one day to be a part of the program again,” Moore said. “We are building something special here in Dallas. I am thankful to the Jones family and [head coach] Mike McCarthy for providing me with the opportunity to coach these special players. I am excited for us to put it all together and finish the job.”

Moore, whose contract was set to expire after the season, is finishing his second season as the Cowboys’ playcaller. In 2019, the Cowboys had the top-ranked NFL offense in terms of yards per game (431.5) and finished second in passing (296.9) and fifth in rushing (134.6), as quarterback Dak Prescott posted career highs in passing yards (4,902) and touchdowns (30).
The Cowboys had the eighth-best scoring offense (25.8).
This season has been much more challenging with the Cowboys (6-9) starting four different quarterbacks. Prescott was lost in the fifth match of the season with a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle that required surgery. Andy Dalton started the next two games before suffering a concussion and missing a game on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which forced rookie Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert to make the first starts of their careers.
The Cowboys were also forced to remake their offensive line numerous times, with right tackle La’el Collins not playing in a game because of hip surgery and left tackle Tyron Smith playing in just two before undergoing neck surgery. Right guard Zack Martin will miss his fifth consecutive game because of a calf strain and sixth overall Sunday.
This season, the Cowboys have the 12th-ranked offense in terms of yards, are seventh in passing and 17th in rushing. They are 16th in scoring, averaging 25.1 points per game.
