The 2024 Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff has come together quickly, with Vic Fangio replacing Matt Patricia as defensive play-caller and now Kellen Moore taking over as the Eagles offensive coordinator in 2024.

Philadelphia needed to make changes after a disastrous collapse in the regular season. Following a 10-1 start that put the team atop the NFC, Philadelphia lost six of its next seven games including a brutal 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card round.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni, who already stripped defensive coordinator Sean Desai of play-calling duties midseason, had to save his job. With pressure from the front office to bring in new defensive coordinators, Sirianni quickly dismissed Patricia, Desai and offensive coordinator Brian Johnson.

Fangio parted ways with the Miami Dolphins to become Philadelphia’s defensive play-caller, but that still left a vacancy at offensive coordinator. Following an accelerated search, the Eagles have reportedly agreed to terms with Moore to make him their new offensive play-caller in 2024.

Kellen Moore, 36 in July, has spent the majority of his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. A decorated quarterback at Boise State, Moore served as the Cowboys’ backup quarterback for three seasons 92015-’17). Following his retirement, he was immediately named the Cowboys’ quarterbacks coach.

Moore oversaw the development of Dak Prescott, helping him become a perennial Pro Bowl selection. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2019, serving in that role for both head coach Jason Garrett (2019) and Mike McCarthy (2020-’22).

After being dismissed by Dallas last offseason, Moore was hired as the Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator. However, injuries derailed the Chargers’ offense in Moore’s first season at the helm.

Los Angeles lost wide receiver Mike Williams to a season-ending injury on Oct. 1 and No. 3 receiver Josh Palmer went out weeks later. The Chargers also played without All-Pro center Corey Linsley for a majority of the season, while running back Austin Ekeler regressed significantly.

  • Philadelphia Eagles offense stats (Weeks 9-18): 199.2 passing yards per game, 11-8 TD-INT, 2.2 sacks per game, 82.1 QB rating, 6.0 net yards per attempt

There will be plenty of changes coming to the Eagles’ offense in 2024. As highlighted by Josh Norris, Philadelphia had the lowest motion rate (32 percent) in the NFL last season. In comparison, the Chargers had the sixth-highest motion rate (68 percent) and Moore used pre-snap motion on 54.6 percent of plays in 2022 with the Cowboys’ offense.

Moore also is likely to deliver something quarterback Jalen Hurts has wanted to see from this offense. In 2023, Hurts ranked 19th among qualified quarterbacks in intermedia throws, with a 17.6 percent attempt rate on passes 10-19 yards past the line of scrimmage. With Moore, the Eagles’ offense will likely be using more of the short and intermediate areas of the field.
