Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has made his first public comments about the departure of Kellen Moore, who was recently fired as the team’s offensive coordinator.

While making the media rounds during Super Bowl week on Thursday, Prescott briefly addressed Moore’s exit, saying that he’s “upset but happy for him [Moore].” The day after Moore was fired by the Cowboys, he was hired by the Los Angeles Chargers to be their offensive coordinator.

During the 2022 regular season, the Cowboys were the fourth highest-scoring team in the league with 28.6 points per game, which puts them behind only the two Super Bowl finalists (Kansas City and Philly) and the Buffalo Bills.

Prescott, however, struggled with turnovers this year as he led the league with 15 interceptions despite missing five games through injury. In addition to Dak’s turnover issues, the Cowboys’ offense was also inept when it mattered most as they put up just 12 points in a losing effort against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game.

Heading into 2023, it appears as though head coach Mike McCarthy will be the team’s offensive play-caller next season following the departure of Moore, who had been with the team (as a coach) since 2018 and served as offensive coordinator since 2019.

While the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cowboys’ divisional rivals, may look poised to build a dynasty, the fact remains that there hasn’t been a repeat champion in the NFC East in nearly 20 years (since 2004).

As for other offseason moves that Dallas is expected to make, reports indicate they plan on using the franchise tag on 25-year-old running back Tony Pollard, who had a breakout season last year as he rushed for 1,007 yards and nine touchdowns while also catching another 33 passes for 310 yards and three scores.
