Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Jets have requested permission to interview Cowboys passing game coordinator/DBs coach Kris Richard for their head-coaching job.
- According to Adam Schefter, the Dolphins are also interested in interviewing Richard for their vacancy.
Richard, 39, began his coaching career with the Seahawks back in 2008 as a graduate assistant. He worked his way up to defensive in 2015 and spent the three seasons in charge of the Seahawks’ defense before parting ways last year.
The Cowboys later hired Richard as their defensive backs coach/passing game coordinator.
