Matt Moore scouted for Dolphins until Chiefs signed him

Print

Seven months ago, Matt Moore appeared ready to return to the Dolphins.

Just not as a quarterback.

Scan the background of Kyler Murray's Pro Day and you'll find the Chiefs' new starter, as he joined up with Miami's scouting department last spring and looked ready to start his post-playing career.

Moore had also just started as an assistant high school coach, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.

Life moved fast indeed for Moore. In August, the Chiefs added him for veteran depth behind Patrick Mahomes. By October, that veteran had to work emergency duty when the reigning MVP went down.

Here's what Moore did on Thursday Night Football: 10 completions, 117 yards, this touchdown, no picks, and a big divisional win that ended Kansas City's two-game losing streak.

Not bad for a guy who was grading Kyler's intangibles just 218 days earlier. A post-playing career can wait; the show is Moore's until Showtime returns.
