Kellen Moore is only 33 years old. You can afford to be selective.
The Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator, who was approached by Boise State last December and the Philadelphia Eagles interviewed in January, is expected to attract the head coach’s interest again during the next hiring cycle.
There is no need to take advantage of any opportunity.
Late Wednesday night, a vacancy emerged that would be a prototypical fit.
The Jacksonville Jaguars fired coach Urban Meyer, ending a toxic one-year term.
Moore must keep an eye on that position, checking key squares to find a suitable position.
Earlier Wednesday, the NFL passed a resolution allowing clubs that made a head coach change since the start of the season to interview assistants from other teams during the final two weeks of the regular season.
The Jaguars can submit a request to interview Moore beginning Dec. 28.
In Jacksonville, Moore would have a talented young quarterback to develop into Trevor Lawrence, the first overall pick last April.
He would enter an environment where his relaxed and unassuming temperament would be accepted as refreshing.
Moore would also have a patient owner.
Sure, the Jaguars’ Shad Khan fired Meyer the same year he hired him, but that dysfunction led to a special circumstance.
Before that, Khan didn’t fire Doug Marrone until he compiled a 23-43 record from 2016 to 2020 and Gus Bradley until he was 14-48 from 2013 to 2016 without a playoff spot.
It is up to Moore if he accepts a virtual interview request during the season.
As of now, the Jaguars and the Las Vegas Raiders are the only franchises that can conduct such an interview.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy indicated Thursday that he will support any of his assistants who are offered an interview.
Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is another of McCarthy’s assistants who may be asked to be interviewed.
