Giants interview Cowboys coach Kris Richard for HC gig

The New York Giants interviewed Dallas Cowboys defensive passing game coordinator Kris Richard, the team announced Thursday.

It was reported on Monday that Richard would be interviewing for the vacant head coaching role at some point, and the team confirmed it. Richard is among the several candidates being interviewed for the head coaching role.

Richard, who is also the Cowboys defensive backs coach, met with team president John Mara, general manager Dave Gettleman and team vice president Kevin Abrams. Richard is the first candidate to interview for the role.

Richard got his start in the NFL in 2010 with the Seattle Seahawks as the team’s assistant defensive backs coach. He also held the role of cornerbacks coach and defensive backs coach. Richard was promoted to defensive coordinator for the Seahawks in 2015 where he held the role for three seasons.

Richard was then hired by the Cowboys in 2018 to be the defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator.

Richard played in the NFL for six seasons. He was a third-round pick with the Seahawks in 2002 and spent three seasons there. He also spent time with the Miami Dolphins (2005), San Francisco 49ers (2005-2006) and Oakland Raiders (2007).

The Giants have a plethora of coaches on the interview slate, but they officially kicked off the search with Richard.
