    Breer said Cowboys have affinity for Lincoln Riley. This follows what Finebaum said months ago. If they go this direction which I would welcome, a good indicator of how his tenure might go would be how many, if any, assistants Jerry forces on him. Jerry is said to want to keep Moore. I want a coach with the juice to name his own staff not another puppet that wants the job.

    If Riley wants to keep Moore I'm more than cool with it.

    But I want him to keep Moore because he wants to not because Jerry told him to.

    Anyone care to explain how the whole, brand-spanking-new contract that he got would play out?

    But wait, there's more!

    Anyone else get bad vibes from such moves? I honestly feel that he would be no better than McDaniels..and what he did to the Colts..if he decides to up and leave a year into this commitment.

    Just my $.02

    I'd be more worried about how they would fix the defense.

    Hiring Riley would presume the defensive coaches are replaced, no?

    I don't know. The more talk I hear, the less likely it will happen. Every time something is hyped up in the media, it never seems to happen. Like our OC situation. We heard so many names, and then Kellen Moore was upgraded to OC. Same for this, except it likely won't be someone from within.

    I'm sure he was an out clause in there somewhere.

    Why would Riley take THIS job...even if he wants to move to the NFL? At OU he has complete control of the roster, for the most part gets to pick the players he wants, is always in contention for a championship and makes as much (or more) than JG. Why come to Dallas to have less power for the same money?

    OU will be good for several years...he'll get another chance.

    I would think so yes. But my worry is that Riley hasn't exactly put together stellar defensive staffs and may struggle to do so.

    So Jerry wants to force another inexperienced OC on the next HC?

    I hope this isn’t true and Jerry learned his lesson last time.

    Riley as head coach and Rivera as defensive coordinator would be an elite combination.

    If Riley is the coach why keep Moore. He can go with Garrett to the Giants.

    We can go back and forth and have Jesus himself coach this team but it dosent matter as long as Botox face is in the owners suite.

    Jerry picking the offensive coordinator before the head coach? Where have I seen that before? :huh:

    1) He would get more money.

    2) Right now 2% of the Worlds population knows who he is. The day he takes the Cowboys job that number jumps to 25%.

    I would love this! River Boat Ron as DC with The Missing Linc as coach and play caller. Let’s do it!

    Jerry... if you or your body guard Roosevelt are reading this, make it happen!

    So short sited...

    Well, he is from OU. Yep, he’s the guy...

    Why not pair Kellen with Petersen??

    Look at what Petersen has done throuought his career. Talk about getting his teams to overachieve.

    BSU used to always get 2 and 3* recruits, but Pete always got his team jacked up for big games, prepared great gameplans, and actually wins the bowls he plays in...

    Didn’t Riley lose his last two bowls? Did he lose a NY6 to UCF?? That’s just sad...

    I doubt anyone accomplished wants to come in to a coaching staff in its lame duck year.

    Riley is exactly the type HC Booger wants because he's really nothing more than a glorified OC allowing Booger to fulfill more of that HC role that he wants to do. He's not bringing his OU staff so that fits as well, Booger can "help" him with the other coaches. He has very little personality so overshadowing the owner with his annoying personality wouldn't be a problem.

    It's a perfect fir for the same ole same ole results.
