(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The Dallas Cowboys officially moved on from offensive coordinator Scott Linehan this weekend, opening up a major hole on staff.According to the latest reports, the Cowboys could fill that vacancy internally by promoting quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore. A former Boise State star, Moore played for Dallas from 2015-17 before assuming QB coaching duties this year.If Moore is indeed promoted, the Cowboys could be looking at another one of their former signal callers to take over his old role. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has stated that Jon Kitna is a potential candidate for a staff position in Dallas.Kitna would take over for Moore as quarterbacks coach.I’m told “don’t laugh, this is a legitimate candidate” in Dallas https://t.co/hgt0onfroB— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) January 20, 2019Kitna played for the Cowboys from 2009-11 and then once again in 2013. Since 2012, he’s been a high school head coach at three different stops, most recently Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona.Kitna compiled a 36-16 record as a high school coach. Back in June, he was hired as the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Fleet of the new Alliance of American Football, which is set to begin play later this year.One has to think that if the Cowboys come calling, it will be tough for Kitna to turn that opportunity down.
26 February 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today voiced disappointment that the continued appeal against her house arrest in Myanmar by prominent pro-democracy and opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was rejected again. “The Secretary-General reiterates his call for the release of all political prisoners and their free participation in the political process,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson. “These are essential steps for national reconciliation and democratic transition in Myanmar,” it added. Ms. Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and leader of the National League for Democracy (NLD), was sentenced last August to an additional 18 months of house arrest. She was convicted of violating state security laws after an uninvited United States citizen gained access to her home after serving over 14 years in detention, according to media reports. Earlier this month, NLD Vice-Chairman U Tin Oo was released after six years of house arrest, in a move welcomed by the Secretary-General, who expressed hope that the development would lead to a more “credible and inclusive political process.” The first elections in Myanmar in more than two decades are slated to take place later this year as part of a Government-designed timetable towards greater democratization.
