The Los Angeles Chargers are hiring Kellen Moore as their new offensive coordinator.
The hiring comes less than 24 hours after the Dallas Cowboys released a statement that said Moore and the team reached a “mutual decision to part ways.”
In L.A., Moore replaces offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, who was fired after a 10-7 season that ended in a historic meltdown loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the wild-card round.
Moore spent four seasons as coordinator for the Cowboys with his offense ranking in the top four in points per game, yards per game, and third-down conversion percentage.
He now gets to work with Justin Herbert, one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, but will face a challenge improving the Chargers run game, which ranked 30th in yards per game.
