Kellen Moore has become a popular man over the last 24 months.
The current Cowboys offensive coordinator was reportedly set to take the head coaching job at Boise State before deciding to stick with Dallas, and now he's getting interest for the same position with a division rival.
According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, the Philadelphia Eagles have requested to interview Kellen Moore for their vacant heading coaching job. The Eagles fired Super Bowl winning coach Doug Pederson last week, following a disastrous 4-11-1 season.
Kellen Moore is drawing a lot of interest this offseason. Philadelphia has requested to interview the Cowboys OC for its head coaching vacancy, a source said. Boise State pursued Moore last month, but he wound up signing a 3-year contract to remain w/ Dallas.

Kellen Moore just signed a three year contract extension to stay with the Cowboys, and many are considering him a “head coach in waiting” of sorts. That doesn't mean he isn't an attractive option to other teams around the league, though, who see a young play caller with a bright future.
Regardless, Kellen Moore is going to be a tough person keep around as just the offensive coordinator over the next few seasons, especially as opportunities like this one pop up more frequently.
