Moore is expected to announce his retirement but stay on with the Cowboys as their new quarterbacks coach, Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reports.
The former Boise State QB finished last season on Dallas' practice squad after losing his backup job to rookie Cooper Rush, and Moore will finish his NFL career having appeared in only three games, all of which came with the Cowboys in 2015. His move into the coaching ranks would also seem to indicate that Scott Linehan will stick around as Dallas' offensive coordinator, as the two have a history together dating back to 2012 with the Lions.
Moore was signed to Dallas' practice squad Friday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Moore was released by the Cowboys on Thursday in order to make room for the signing of tight end Blake Jarwin. Moore could potentially be promoted to the active roster should either Dak Prescott or backup Cooper Rush suffer an injury.
The Cowboys released Moore on Thursday.
Dallas already had another backup quarterback on hand in Cooper Rush and didn't want tight end Blake Jarwin to get poached from its practice squad, so the team promoted Jarwin to the 53-man roster and bid adieu to Moore, who hadn't appeared in an NFL game since 2015. It's not expected that Moore will draw much interest as a backup option elsewhere around the league, so if he goes unclaimed off waivers, he could remain in the organization as a member of Dallas' practice squad, according to Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that Moore would re-sign with the team, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Jones' announcement comes just three days after the Cowboys cut him from their roster in what was presumably an indication that undrafted rookie Cooper Rush had captured the backup gig behind starter Kellen Moore. However, in addition to announcing that Moore would rejoin the Dallas roster, Jones said that the team hasn't decided whether Moore or Rush will serve as Prescott's understudy in the Week 1 clash with the Giants. The team's gameday inactive report should provide more clarity on that front.
Moore was released by the Cowboys on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Moore entered training camp as the backup to Dak Prescott, but undrafted rookie Cooper Rush made an impressive push to usurp Moore from that No. 2 job.
