The Los Angeles Chargers today agreed to contract terms with Kellen Moore to be the team’s offensive coordinator. Moore coached for the Dallas Cowboys, serving as offensive coordinator for the past four seasons (2018-22) after beginning his career as Dallas’ quarterback’s coach.

Moore coordinated a Dallas offense that was the best in the NFL in 2021, leading the league in total offense (407.0 net yards per game) and scoring offense (31.2 points per game).

During his first season as offensive coordinator in 2019, Moore’s unit led the league with 431.5 total net yards per game, which was the tenth-best single-season performance in NFL history and the best of any offense since Denver’s record unit in 2013 (457.3).

In four seasons as offensive coordinator, Moore’s unit ranked second in the NFL in total offense (391.0 net yards per game) and scoring (27.7 points per game).

Dallas’ offense was also the fourth-best air offense in the NFL (264.4 net yards per game) and ranked No. 7 in the league in rushing offense (126.6 yards per game) during that span.

Moore helped the Cowboys secure a pair of NFC East Division titles and make three playoff appearances in his five seasons as an assistant coach.

He coached eight players who earned a combined 12 Pro Bowl picks as offensive coordinator and also taught Dak Prescott another as quarterback coach during the 2018 season.

Moore played quarterback six seasons in the NFL with Detroit and Dallas after signing as an undrafted free agent with the Boise State Lions.

A native of Prosser, Washington, Moore was a member of the Football Writers’ Association of America’s first All-American team at Boise State in 2010.

He was twice named Western Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year (2009-10) and was Western Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2011. Moore and his wife, Julie, have two daughters, Halle and Madelyn, and a son, Kyler.
