The Broncos continued their head coaching search on Tuesday, as they completed an interview with Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

General Manager George Paton and the team's search committee have now interviewed four candidates for the team's head coaching vacancy.

Moore, who has four years of NFL coaching experience, has spent the last three seasons as the Cowboys' offensive coordinator and led the top-ranked total offense and top-ranked scoring offense in 2021. Dallas also posted the NFL's best total offense and ranked sixth in scoring in 2019.

The former Boise State and NFL quarterback joined Dallas' coaching staff in 2018 as the team's quarterbacks coach and was quickly promoted to offensive coordinator. During his time leading the offense, the Cowboys have had five players named to a combined seven Pro Bowl appearances.

"The biggest thing that helps [his candidacy] is the landscape of the NFL, where it just seems like whoever is the next most popular young offensive mind, it seems to put you right at the top of whatever coaching opening is there," The Athletic's Jon Machota told DenverBroncos.com. "… There's always been a lot of hype behind Kellen. Everybody has known that even if he doesn't get a head coaching job in this cycle, he's eventually going to get one, whether it be in college or the pros. It's just inevitable [and more] about when it's going to happen."

The Broncos will reportedly interview six more candidates for their head coaching position, including Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Denver previously interviewed Lions DC Aaron Glenn, Packers quarterbacks/passing game coordinator Luke Getsy and Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett.
