    Jerry will bully that guy like no other. 36 year old college coach with 3 years experience. Classic Jerry move. Rumors are that Meyer wants too much control. I mean why do that with one of the best college coaches ever and a guy that wins big every stop? Better to hire another yes man that has little experience and no desire to help on the defensive side of the ball.

    Nothing will change.

    That's exactly what I mean. We will know whats going to be what with this hire, possibly even beforehand if a coordinator is hired first.

    I'm done if he pulls this, and I don't want to be, but I cant keep this up. It's not healthy, and I'm not trying to be funny.

    Agreed. Best hope it's someone else for this obvious reason.

    If jerrah is not willing to give up control to UM, then he doesn't want to win. He doesn't want to give up camera time and will continue to try to get that squad peg in the round hole doing it his way.

    No thanks
    His lack of ANY NFL experience scares the heck out of me and quite frankly he's just another Steve Spurrier or Chip Kelly IMO. Just me but I think Jerry tried cool that perception a bit the lack of NFL success college coaches have had. So I'm not sure this isn't blown out proportion a bit. In other words, Jerry probably like/loves a lot of coaches but that doesn't mean he see them as a coach for the Cowboys.

    Lincoln Riley will be a hot item as a potential NFL head coach in the days to come. If the Dallas FO wants to secure him, they'll likely have to be decisive about it. The Cowboys organization is slow as molasses about making decisions. Do that with him and he'll likely end up elsewhere.

    On the downside, he's exactly the type of college transitional candidate that they'd try to hand pick his assistants for him, whereas, a successful NFL coaching candidate wouldn't allow it. Hopefully, he'd make certain to resist their attempts to do so, if he knows what's good for him.

    If Riley has even half a brain he will stay as far away from Jerry's clown show as possible.

    He'll be a good choice to mentor Kellen Moore for 3-5 years until he's fired.

    Jerry doesnt respect the HC position as being key.

    Thinks he can do it himself and I wish he just would.

    At this point, comparing him to Al Davis is a serious insult to Davis.

    Being a very successful college coach requires different skills than being an NFL head coach - recruiting at the top of the list. No real recruiting in the NFL, drafting is the key. If Riley misses on a recruited high school player, he has 89 other guys to make up for it. But miss on an NFL draftee and you've blown about a quarter of your opportunity, since your top 4 players are about as far down as you can go and get a really good shot at having a quality player. The Bradys of the NFL are rare.

    Doesn't mean Riley can't do it, after all he sees top college players in action "up close and personal" so he could pick from who he knows the first couple of years, after that he'd be at the mercy of his scouting department.

    Much as I loved Jimmy as a head coach, Riley won't get a ton of high draft picks and a ton of free agents like Jimmy did, since he left so early we'll never know if Jimmy could have had the Landry-like or Belichick-like continued success, from his Dolphin days it would indicate he wouldn't, but again, he left Miami so soon we'll never know that, either....

    I’m not surprised. It seems they have college coaches more on their radar then nfl. I think rhule is the dark horse.

    Yeah but the idea that the coach has no authority is a bigger issue than XO.

    No coach can work that way.

    Totally agree Jerry will bully Riley. Meyer intimates Jerry because he's an older alpha and Jerry cant bully him. If Riley is hired, I wonder if the few assistants Jerry allows him to hire are OU college guys? Look for Kellen Moore to be retained. Maybe Richard is promoted to DC. Get ready boys, it ain't going to be pretty.
