"I think the most important thing coming from the head coach position is you have to do what's best for the football team. Personally, I know I’ll miss it. I miss a lot of components of it already. But my sole responsibility is to make sure I can help Kellen be the best play-caller possible," McCarthy said. "He's still young at it. He has a great mind. I've been extremely impressed with him every step of the way, from building the installs, the way he's delivered it in the meetings to players, and his on-the-field coaching. So it's the best decision for this football team. There is so much more that I want to and need to focus on as far as building the program the way I see it needs to be done. There's a lot of energy that goes through it and I just didn't want to short the offense. I felt like I did that at times in Green Bay."
Moore was the offensive coordinator under former head coach Jason Garrett in 2019 but McCarthy was able to convince the 32-year-old to stay on board.
