FRISCO, Texas – First, it was his alma mater, Boise State, who sought to hire him as head coach. Now it looks like the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in interviewing Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore for their senior coaching position.
According to several reports, the Eagles have requested permission to interview Moore.
The Cowboys signed Moore to a three-year extension before the Giants season finale when he turned down the Boise job.
Under NFL rules, even if coaches are under contract, teams must allow their coaches to interview positions that are seen as a promotion, including coordinator spots and, of course, head coach jobs.
The Eagles, who recently fired Doug Pederson, have an interesting dilemma at quarterback with Carson Wentz under contract alongside Jalen Hurts, who had a sizzling end to his debut year when he replaced Wentz as a starter.
