Cowboys players and coaches saw their work week get condensed slightly when the NFL flexed their Week 18 regular-season finale from Sunday afternoon to Saturday night. The scheduling move means one less day for the team to prepare for a game against the Eagles that means little to the postseason, except to firm up seedings.

But also on the to-do list for offensive coordinator Kellen Moore in that now-abbreviated timeframe? Squeeze in a job interview.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero tweeted during Sunday’s Dallas loss that Moore was expected to speak virtually with the Jacksonville Jaguars about their head coaching opening “late next week.”

New league rules this season allow assistants to interview with other teams during Weeks 17 and 18 of the regular season, rather than have to wait until their current team has been eliminated from play.

Following up on that report on-air Monday, Pelissero said that thanks to the Cowboys’ new date in Philadelphia on Saturday, one “can probably infer” that Moore’s interview will likely take place on Friday.

Defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is also on the Jaguars’ list of candidates; it was reported last week he will not interview for the position during this two-week window.
