Cowboys WR Coach Robert Prince has Strong Ties to OC Kellen Moore

received several interviews for head jobs after producing two No. 1 offenses in the past three seasons for the . He was granted a second sit-down with the brass of the and they were impressed with his presentation, but they decided to hire former Mike McDaniel as their new .

After striking out on at least four opportunities to be the head man of an organization (interviewed with Minnesota, Denver, and Jacksonville as well), Moore is returning as the offensive coordinator in Dallas in 2022. There would be one vacancy to fill on the Cowboys staff after he announced he was coming back however as Adam Henry's contract expired. Dallas turned to Robert Prince to take over the duties of Henry, and he is very familiar with the aforementioned Moore.

Prince was the wide receivers coach at Boise State in 2011 which was Moore's senior season with the Broncos, but it goes deeper than that. In 2014, Moore's final season as a backup with the , Prince held the same title in the Motor City.

Besides his time with the Lions, Prince has plenty of NFL experience with several other organizations dating back to 2004. He had stints with the , , , and . The Okinawa, Japan native held various titles as an offensive assistant, running backs coach, coach, assistant , and wide receivers coach.

This is a crucial season for Moore. Although his unit put up impressive numbers, they were not the same juggernaut at the end of the season as they were in the first six weeks, and it culminated in a lackluster showing against the 49ers in the of the which led to the Cowboys promising year coming to an end prematurely.

Once Moore knew he was returning to the Cowboys, he put Prince's name as the top candidate to become the leader of the team's room. The hope is that the familiarity between the two can fix some communication issues that arose with Quarterback and the receiving corp in 2021.

The spotlight on Prince will be much bigger in Dallas and it will be interesting to see if the Cowboys wide receivers can improve next season under his guidance.

Idk if I’m gonna like this guy, I’m not sure how good he is with his receivers, but the teams he coached for wasn’t really any good during the time he was coaching the receivers for those teams!! It kinda makes me worry!! I think we should have went after a more proven receiver coach!! I’m not sure I trust Kellen enough to make a decision on picking a coach either!! But that’s just my opinion…. Who knows, maybe I’m completely wrong about this guy!! And to be honest, now that we have already brought him on as the receivers coach, I really hope I am wrong about him!!
