The Dallas Cowboys have yet to officially hire an offensive coordinator to replace the recently-fired Scott Linehan.
Given that Linehan was tasked with calling plays over the past couple seasons, this is no small thing.
Though, current quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore is likely to take over that position after just one season as an assistant in the NFL.
In talking about Moore and head coach Jason Garrett, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones broke some relatively big news Wednesday evening.
Jerry Jones while talking about Kellen Moore on @1053thefan: "Jason's going to be making an announcement here real quickly, but make no mistake about it, he’s going to be a key guy in what play is run on that football field. By key, probably have the ultimate responsibility."

“By key, probably have the ultimate responsibility. This is a clear indication that Jones expects Moore to be the Cowboys’ play caller in 2019.
It’s a rather interesting situation. Moore retired from the NFL following the 2017 campaign to pursue a career in coaching. He has absolutely no experience calling plays at any level.
On the other hand, Garrett was hired by the Cowboys years back — primarily to call plays. If he’s not going to do that moving forward, what’s the point of keeping Garrett around?
It certainly is a reasonable question.
