Replaces Joe Lombardi

The Chargers have a new offensive coordinator. The Bolts announced on Monday they have agreed to terms with Kellen Moore for the role. Moore spent the past four seasons as the Offensive Coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. When Moore became available, the Chargers moved quickly and interviewed Moore on Sunday evening, agreeing to terms shortly thereafter to become to the team’s offensive coordinator. In Moore’s four seasons in Dallas, the Cowboys twice had the top-ranked offense in yards per game (2019 and 2021) and led the league in points scored in 2021 with 31.2 per game.

Nerdy Football Analysis: While Joe Lombardi was good for Austin Ekeler’s career, it seems as though he was a bit of a drain on Justin Herbert and the passing game. Moore is an unquestionable upgrade and arguably lands in a situation that has a better player at every key offensive spot than he had in Dallas. Expect Moore to open up the passing game a bit more, including more shots downfield to take advantage of Herbert’s arm strength. Ekeler, Mike Williams, Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer and Gerald Everett are all under contract for 2022.
