Jim Harbaugh will have to have to look for a new offensive coordinator.
Kellen Moore is joining the Eagles as their new offensive coordinator, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.
Philadelphia will be Moore’s third team in as many seasons.
The former backup quarterback previously worked as Mike McCarthy’s offensive coordinator with the Cowboys from 2019-22, where his group scored a league-best 31.2 points per game during the 2021 season.
Moore, however, was dismissed before the 2023 campaign over philosophical differences.
“I’ve been where Kellen has been: Kellen wants to light the scoreboard up,” McCarthy told reporters at the NFL combine last year.
“But I want to run the damn ball so I can rest my defense. I don’t desire to be the No. 1 offense in the league.
“I want to be the No. 1 team in the league with a number of wins and a championship.”
Moore, 35, then went to the Chargers this past season, ranking 21st in the NFL in scoring (20.4 points per game) and 18th in total yards per game (329.4).
With the Eagles, Moore will inherit Jalen Hurts and an Eagles offense that sputtered in its final three games, including a playoff flop to the Buccaneers in the wild-card round.
The Eagles then fired offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, and earlier this week, head coach Nick Sirianni explained at a press conference what he wants out of a new offensive play-caller.
“We need to bring a guy in with new ideas that’s not part of this family of coaches,” Sirianni said. “I think that’s an important thing.”
Moore’s reported hiring comes after the Eagles added Vic Fangio as their new defensive coordinator.
