Kellen Moore (Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator)

At just 33-years-old, Kellen Moore has done a fantastic job as the offensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys since being promoted from quarterbacks coach in 2019.

Under Moore, the Cowboys have averaged around 27 points per game. Dallas ranked sixth in scoring in 2019, 17th in 2020 (they were averaging an NFL-best 32.6 ppg before Dak Prescott fractured his ankle in Week 5), and they ranked third in points per game through their seven games of the current season.

Moore would bring an element to the Vikings locker room that has been lacking — the experience of a winner. Currently, the only guys on Minnesota’s roster to be part of a team that made it to the Super Bowl are cornerback Bashaud Breeland and quarterback Sean Mannion.

Moore would bring a mentality to the Vikings that he got from being the winningest quarterback in college football history. His Boise State background would make being the head coach of Minnesota a Mid-West homecoming.

Moore did just sign a three-year extension with the Cowboys this past offseason after it was reported he was pursuing the head coaching job at Boise State. That being said, he does have the desire to become a head coach in the NFL, and Minnesota has the weapons on offense to entice any offensive mind.
