Cowboys defensive passing game coordinator Kris Richard had three interviews for head coaching jobs a year ago. He has at least one scheduled in this hiring cycle.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that Richard will interview for the Giants’ head coaching position on Thursday.

Richard interviewed with the Jets, Dolphins and Buccaneers last January. He nearly got the job in Miami that went to Brian Flores instead.

The Cowboys, with Richard calling the plays, were a disappointment on defense. They finished ninth in total defense and 11th in points allowed.

Richard, 41, served as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator for three seasons before Pete Carroll fired him after the 2017 season. He has spent the past two seasons in Dallas.

  1. Rooney rule candidate who will likely get a handful of interviews. Piggy backed in Seattle off of Dan Quinn’s defense and never really excelled when he got the full time gig. Same goes for Dallas.

  2. I like the guy but this year was a letdown. The fact that he can’t develop Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie into quality corners is a knock against him considering both have flashed talent. Looks like it’s the case that the Legion of Boom made him more than the other way around

  3. Eagles have a better record without wentz eagles play much better without wentz so everything orlovsky says is completely false wentz zero playoff wins eagles 5 playoff wins without wentz !!!!!!!!!!

  4. This, is what unfortunately makes the Rooney Rule a joke. If he were white, his track record would not get him multiple interviews.

    The NFL is only sees green, the color of money. If you can win, they will hire you.

  5. I was a Kris Richard backer last year. I thought he brought a refreshing approach as a young coach. After watching him this year as the defacto DC of the Cowboys, he’s a bust. Rod Marinelli has still had the title as the DC, but Marinelli was being phase out. He was supposedly was only coaching the DL. Ricrad was calling the defense. Under Marinelli the defense was unpredictable 2 years ago. He would blitz when he needed to change the tone. Richard rarely did. Basically with the same players, the defense wasn’t the same. It was sorely lacking under Richards.

    If the Giants want him, please take him. The ‘Boys were better before we let him call the defense. Under Marinalli they was a certain fire in the defense. Under Richard that fire went out!
