    If he is, than money should not be an excuse. Cowboys makes enough money that if they have to double his salary and they think he’s the right guy than do it. I personally don’t know if he is or not, but Jerry has enough he should be able to use it to entice the best coaching staff around.

    This begs the question, is Lincoln Riley as intrigued with Jerry as Jerry is with him?

    There's also an issue around how much Jerry would be willing to spend to get him!

    It's being said lately that several GMs around the NFL will be vying for his services.

    Paul Finebaum of ESPN/SEC Network is adamant Riley will be coaching the Cowboys next season. We'll see.

    LOL I don't care if it's TMZ or the enquirer. Just hoping for a glimmer of truth.

    Whoever the next coach is he better get to pick his staff or he’ll be undermined by one of Jerry’s minions anyway.....

    There's only two things that come out of Oklahoma...... one's a steer and that's right up Jerry's alley. A coach with no balls! He does have hope since he is originally from the great state of Texas!!!

    I don't know a whole lot about Riley but I will tell you If hes anything like what I've read/heard? I would be happy to have him.

    Does anyone know who hes worked with as far as defensive coaches? I would be interested to know who he would have run the defense and what their system would consist of.

    He would be good for Dak as well as a positive mentor for Moore.

    Maybe that's his delay in firing Garrett.........he will likely wait till the off season and after ou's season ends to address this. Would be a big name coach that Jerry would like.

    Like I said in another thread, I'll believe it when I see it.

    I'd love to see him as HC. But at this point I'd be in favor of Pee Wee Herman.

    Super Bowl appearance with a loss this year with Garrett and Garrett signs extension


    We display pitiful effort the rest of the season and Garrett is released and Jerry hires Riley?

    Which would you choose and why?

    This is another example of a ridiculously misleading title to an article. There isn't one iota of evidence to support the assertion that Jones is intrigued by Riley if he gets rid of Garrett. Anyone can be a reporter these days if all they have to do is print whatever they can think up in their minds without the requirement of supporting evidence.

    If he hires Riley, let the man run the team as he sees fit.
