    I think we have a Kris Richard dilemma.

    He almost certainly needs to be the next head coach of this team. I would have liked a more experienced head coach, but it probably needs to be him. He has a connection with these defensive players and despite a few positions, they're playing decently well.

    The dilemma is that I don't think you can hire a new head coach and then tell them Kris Richard is your defensive coordinator. You just can't do it (Jerry would do it, but it isn't the right move).

    So either you elevate Richard or you lose a very talented coach, and maybe the latter is the better move.

    Pete Carmichael Jr., Josh McDaniels, and Jim Harbaugh are all very high on my list.

    When I think of the lack of experience Richard has, I remember he has a decade of coaching experience compared to the five years experience Garrett had before becoming the head coach. He's also had tremendous success whereas Garrett had not.

    My biggest worry with Richard becoming head coach is if he doesn't clean house across the coaching staff.

    I would certainly take him over Garrett at this juncture.

    I don't think it's at all out of the realm of possibility to bring in an offensive minded HC who has no problems with Richards as DC. It's not as if the guy is some secret. He's been a DC before and it would only make sense he'd be one again soon.

    If we decide to dip into the college ranks, it would make even more since to keep Richards (for the new HC) so he has someone with experience in the league and in our division specifically.

    I’m not so sure this is a real problem...it’s an offense driven league! The next coach will be an offensive minded coach.

    I guess Jim Harbaugh makes sense. He did well with Kaepernick who sort of resembles Dak Prescott in that neither is/was deadly accurate but could do other things.

    Nothing to lose, but I will put Rowdy in there as well. Even though he is the real jinx since 1996.

    Who are you worried that Richard would keep?

    Urban Meyer might be able to right this ship. There are a lot of college coaches who would be much better than Garrett.

    Honestly, I want to completely clean slate, at least on offense. Imagine he leaves the offense in place... You need to put in a new system not just fire Garrett.

    I'd rather have Lincoln Riley than Urban Meyer, honestly. Urban is a human dumpster. He quit on his Florida team when Tebow bailed and then covered up an asst coach beating his wife and the rehired the same guy. No thanks.

    Whats the dilemma? Elevate him to HC and let him choose his OC.

    This is a big part of the reason why I'd actually like to else Garrett fired during the season.

    To give the head job to Richard and see what he could do with it. If he brings in a guy like Darrell Bevell and they possibly make improvements to an offense that currently has no answers. And just to see if he's truly head coaching material without having to commit to him for several years.

    If he has it? Great! You've got your man and a head start on 2019.

    If he doesn't? Then you know and have little problem with him staying on as defensive coordinator of your new dad coach wants to keep him, or having him move on entirely.

    Maybe you mortgage the draft and get Haskins and bring in Meyer to coach him and Zeke... I don't know...

    I can't imagine that. He's here now, he's seeing what's going on there. I have absolutely no fear of that.

    Why does he "need" to be the next head coach? I like him but frankly, I think there might be better options out there.

    At this point, given where we are, I think I'd like to see them bring in a youngish, offensive minded coach. The next 4-6 years are predicated on how we fix this woeful offense. We need a head coach that has the chops and bonafides to look at our current situation and make the hard decisions about the QB spot - can they resurrect Dak, is it time to cut bait with Dak, etc..............

    If JG gets fired and Richard comes in and doesn't win a Super Bowl fans will blame him for sabotaging JG.
