Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Kris Richard is going to be a busy man this
First up, he'll coach the Cowboys secondary against his former team in
Saturday night's Wild-Card game against the Seattle Seahawks.
After that, he'll take off for a whirlwind day of interviews with three NFL
teams with head coach openings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Richard is reportedly set to meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets
and Miami Dolphins.
The former USC and NFL defensive back has emerged as one of the hottest names
among prospective coaches after helping turn around the Cowboys defensive
backfield this season.
Richards, who also serves as the defensive passing game coordinator, has
earned high praise from Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.
"Whoever is interviewing him, they are smart people," Marinelli said, per the
Dallas News. "He's sharp. He's got great communication skills. He has a great
background. He relates well with players. (He has high standards) and he'll
hold you to the standards."
