FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Kellen Moore is staying as offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys, and new coach Mike McCarthy says the plan is for Moore to continue calling plays. Moore was promoted to his current job in the final season under Jason Garrett. The former Dallas coach’s contract wasn’t renewed after the team fell short of expectations in a make-or-break season for Garrett. Mike Nolan will be Dallas’ new defensive coordinator. He is one of two former San Francisco head coaches on McCarthy’s staff. The other is defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.
