The Los Angeles Chargers‘ hiring of offensive coordinator Kellen Moore may not have been the big hire their fans were hoping for, as many of them wanted the team to fire head coach Brandon Staley and replace him with former New Orleans Saints’ coach Sean Payton, who is now headed to the Denver Broncos.
But there is still a touch of optimism in the air for perennially snakebit Chargers fans, as Moore is an accomplished offensive coordinator.
On their official Twitter account, the Chargers made sure everyone knew about his accomplishments.

Moore has spent the last four seasons as the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, and during that time, they have had one of the NFL’s top offenses.
He has had star players such as quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receivers Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb and running back Ezekiel Elliott, and he has largely maximized them.
In each of the last two seasons, the Cowboys finished 12-5, and although they lost early in the playoffs both years, they had established themselves as a formidable foe in the NFC.
In L.A., Moore will have the task of transforming an offense that definitely has talent but finished toward the bottom of the league in key categories.
Many criticized the team for not employing a vertical passing attack around QB Justin Herbert, and that is the biggest change Moore will need to bring to the Bolts.
In addition, he will need to supercharge a running attack that finished 30th in yards despite the presence of one of the league’s best dual-threat running backs in Austin Ekeler.NEXT: Skip Bayless Shares A Bold 2023 Chargers Prediction
