Moore spent four seasons in that role before agreeing to part ways with the Cowboys last week. He has since joined the Los Angeles Chargers as their offensive coordinator.

“I am very happy to have Brian take on this key role with our team. He has been an important part of our staff already and has a great grasp of where we are and where we want to go,” Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement. “Brian also has an exceptionally strong foundation, history and relationships beyond his time here that translate very well into understanding what our approach to operating and executing will be for the future. This will be an exciting and efficient transition for us that I am confident will help yield the growth and results we all want and expect.”

Schottenheimer, 49, was the Jacksonville Jaguars’ passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2021. He was the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive coordinator from 2018-20, a role he previously held with the then-St. Louis Rams (2012-14) and New York Jets (2006-11).

“I am thrilled and thankful for this exciting opportunity and embrace the high standards and expectations that come with this role and the Dallas Cowboys organization,” Schottenheimer said in a statement. “Having long-standing, great respect and appreciation for Mike McCarthy as a person, a leader and a head coach makes this a very rewarding and compelling moment for me. The ability to win with great teammates that share the same goals, and alignment with how to reach them, makes this special for me and I am very grateful for it.”

He is the son of the late Marty Schottenheimer, a former head coach of the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington and then then-San Diego Chargers.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced Wednesday that McCarthy would call the offensive plays for the team next season.
