Are The Cowboys Preparing To Replace Jason Garrett With Lincoln Riley?
Are the Cowboys preparing to replace Jason Garrett with Lincoln Riley?
According to Colin Cowherd, that is precisely what Jerry Jones is on the verge of doing.
Despite starting the season off with three consecutive victories, Dallas finds itself in something of a precarious situation heading into Week 7.
The Cowboys opened the year with wins over an Eli Manning-led New York Giants team, the hapless Washington Redskins and the inept Miami Dolphins.
Unfortunately, the good times would end shortly thereafter as the team then promptly fell back-to-back-to-back to the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and New York Jets.
Given the Cowboys’ recent nosedive, Cowherd believes that Jones already has Garrett’s replacement in mind.
“I think Jerry already knows who his next coach is,” Cowherd said.
If the Cowboys move on from Jason Garrett, @ColinCowherd believes Lincoln Riley is next in line:

“I’m not sure he’s ready to hire him, but I know who Jerry’s next coach is going to be when he decides to hire him.
“It may be this year, it may be two years down the road, but it’s Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma.”
Depending on how Dallas finishes out the year, Cowherd may find out how accurate his assessment of the situation is sooner rather than later.
