The Dallas Cowboys reached an agreement Saturday night on a multi-year contract extension that will keep Kellen Moore as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Moore, 32, has been in the position for the past two seasons.

Last weekend, reports were speculating if Moore would return to his alma mater Boise Stare after the vacancy became open.

After the announced of his contract extension with the Cowboys, Moore released the following statement:

“I am very excited to remain with the Dallas Cowboys as the offensive coordinator. I will no longer be pursuing the head coaching job at Boise State. I love Boise State. I will always root for them, and I hope one day to be a part of the program again.

We are building something special here in Dallas. I am thankful to the Jones family and Mike McCarthy for providing me with the opportunity to coach these special players. I am excited for us to put it all together and finish the job.”
