Chargers hiring Kellen Moore as their new OC

COSTA MESA, Calif. — The Los Angeles Chargers have actually accepted terms with Kellen Moore to be their brand-new offending planner, the group revealed Monday.

The relocation comes less than 24 hr after the Dallas Cowboys launched a declaration that stated Moore and the group had actually reached a “mutual decision to part ways” following an end-of-season evaluation procedure.

In L.A., Moore is changing offending planner Joe Lombardi, who was fired after a 10-7 season that ended in a historical disaster loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the wild-card round.

Moore, 33, will take control of an offense led by quarterback Justin Herbert, who last season passed Andrew Luck to tally the most passing lawns through a gamer’s very first 3 NFL seasons. Moore likewise acquires receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams and running back Austin Ekeler, who last season led the NFL with 18 goals.

Moore goes from training Dak Prescott, who led the league in interception rate (3.8%) this season, to Herbert, who had the seventh-lowest interception rate (1.4%) in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Information research study.

At the beginning of the look for a brand-new offending planner, coach Brandon Staley stated he would try to find management and a system that looked like the ones released by Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay and San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan.

“The offenses that I think are the most challenging to defend … are the ones that put a lot of pressure on you every snap, in terms of marrying the run game to the pass game, putting a lot of pressure on you with personnel groupings, pace, motion, and being able to get the explosions consistently,” Staley stated.

The Chargers’ offense ranked 10th last season, scoring approximately 22.47 points per video game. But they had a hard time to regularly run the football, balancing just 89.6 lawns per video game, which ranked 30th.

Moore invested 4 seasons as planner for the Cowboys, with his offense ranking in the leading 4 in points per video game (27.7), lawns per video game (391) and third-down conversion portion (44%).

With the Chargers, he’s expected to release a more well balanced offending attack than the Bolts counted on under Lombardi.

Last season, the Chargers called a developed hand down 68% of plays, the second-highest rate in the NFL behind just the Buccaneers (68.1%). The Cowboys called a developed hand down 54.6% of their plays in 2022, the sixth-lowest rate in the league.

“In terms of the passing game, that’s what we’ve been able to do at a high level for the last two years, throw the football,” Staley stated prior to Moore’s hiring. “But to be more explosive, you have to be able to run the football more consistently to put more pressure on people.”

The Cowboys under Moore ranked 11th in rate of dynamite plays (10.1%), certified as a 10-yard run or 20-yard pass play, while the Chargers the last 2 seasons under Lombardi ranked 30th (8.1%).

The Chargers likewise talked to Rams passing video game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Zac Robinson, Rams senior offending assistant Greg Olsen, Rams assistant head coach/tight ends coach Thomas Brown and Minnesota Vikings assistant quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson for the position.

It’s uncertain whether Moore will make more modifications to the Chargers’ offending personnel. A job stays at quarterbacks coach after Shane Day likewise was fired after the season.
