    Is Kris Richard Actually Jason Garrett’s Replacement, Not Rod Marinelli’s?

    Much has already been made about the hiring of . He was brought in to be this year's and , but it's a title I don't think he will hold for long.

    It has already been speculated that Kris Richard will become 's successor to become the Dallas Cowboys next . Marinelli in fact contemplated after the completion of the , but decided to give it another go in 2018. But, anything beyond that is unknown at this point.

    It isn't that hard to believe that Kris Richard will be the Dallas Cowboys next defensive coordinator. He already has a pretty good track record as a DC from his time with the (2015-2017). During that time, the Seahawks had one of the better defenses in the league, which is why a lot of Cowboys fans are excited about what he can do in Dallas.

    This was a terrific hire by the Dallas Cowboys. Richard is one of the top up-and-coming coaches in the league today and is highly respected around the league. For him to take a step back from defensive coordinator to become the DB coach/ coordinator in Dallas is a little confusing.

    Why would he take a step back in his career to come to the Dallas Cowboys?

    Before he agreed to come to Dallas, Richard interviewed for the head-coaching job with the . To already be considered a head-coaching candidate tells you all you need to know about the trajectory of Richard's career. Again, why take a step back with the Cowboys?

    We all know that is a fantastic salesman. He must've been able to convince Richard that he has a chance at a big promotion sometime soon. But, would a promotion to defensive coordinator be enough for Richard? Does he have his eyes set on something bigger?

    I know that I'm not alone, but is on thin ice this season. If he doesn't at least get the Dallas Cowboys into the this year, he could be looking for a new job, which would create a vacancy at . This could be the kind of opportunity Kris Richard is looking for.

    I find it a little hard to believe that Kris Richard would be willingly to come coach in Dallas knowing that the entire could be dismissed after the season if Jason Garrett isn't successful. That's not typically the kind of job security you look for, so something has to have been promised to him behind closed doors.

    I know it's a lot of speculation right now, but I don't think it's completely out of the realm of possibility. Someone is going to have to replace Jason Garrett if he falters this season and Kris Richard is a logical choice. After all, it's kind of the way Garrett became the head coach of the Cowboys when he replaced . Could repeat itself?

    Do you think Kris Richard is Jason Garrett's eventual replacement?

    He’ll make this defense great again and then we’ll lose him next year cuz Jerry will be Jerry and keep his son Garrett around

    Tall Texan

    God, I hope you are wrong…but I fear you aren’t…

    Truther612

    Lets wait to see what he does with his current position before moving forward

    Sexcdex Xfact

    IDK
    But it’s sad for fans to be tired of losing yet dead-set on keeping with the same ol rational, schemes, approach, opinions

    Then it’s absurd for commentors to totally dis Richard for absolutely no apparent reason when he’s talented, experienced & has been tauted as a HC candidate for years now

    He elevated Seattle’s defense with young inexperienced DB’s
    much like our current situation

    Again, idk but I’d he fits the bill then so beit

    We can ask for Nick Saban, Jimmy Johnson, either of the Harbaugh’s, etc, but great hires don’t always pan out

    Even coaches who win teams their first championship RARELY repeat, even with other teams so what justifies a good hire anyway?

    So no-one can guarantee what we want & unknowns, historically are known to have surpassed the “Perfect Fit HC ” in wins & championships

    Why not Kris Richards?
    Even Bill Belichek failed early on, so did the great Tom Landry, & Tony Dungy built up two franchise teams only to be replaced & another reaped from his efforts before he was allowed to finish the job in Indy

    We should be fed up with eating crow, (especially our own), & even moreso of thinking we know better than people who do this for a living

    All draft picks, trades, coach-hires need not to be “SEXY”, but need to be shrewd

    I just want what’s best for the DALLAS COWBOYS & FANBASE, regardless
    Shouldn’t we all???
