Dallas Cowboys: Cowboys’ Kris Richard completes head coaching interviews with Bucs, Dolphins, Jets; Jerry Jones jokes he might ‘tie him up’ until next week

Defensive backs coach Kris Richard interviewed for the head coaching job with three NFL teams Sunday in Dallas, less than 24 hours after helping lead the Cowboys to a playoff win over his former team in Seattle.

Richard, 39, interviewed with the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. They are three of eight NFL teams with head coaching vacancies. Richard is in his first year in Dallas and also serves as the Cowboys’ defensive passing game coordinator and has handled a majority of the defensive play-calling this season. Richard coached in Seattle from 2010 to 2017, serving as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator the last three seasons before joining Dallas. Richard helped Byron Jones reach the Pro Bowl this season in his move from safety back to cornerback.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Miami’s front office staff was on hand Saturday night at AT&T Stadium to get an up-close look at Richard as the Cowboys played the Seahawks in the NFC wild card playoff game.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked after the win over Seattle if there is anything he can do to keep Richard with so many teams pursuing him.

“I’ve got a house out here between the Oklahoma line and here, you handcuff him, you tie him up and you don’t let him out until right before the game next week,” Jones joked. “That will work. I’ve done things like that before.”
