Report: Former Defensive Coordinator will be hired by Cowboys

He will boost the defensive staff

Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

Kris Richard will be joining the Cowboys

"An official announcement has not yet been made, but according to reports, Richard will become the team’s new secondary coach and take over passing game coordinator duties on defense."

The reason there is a spot available?

"Monday on DallasCowboys.com podcast “Hangin’ With The Boys,” executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed that the Cowboys would likely lose passing game coordinator/linebackers coach Matt Eberflus to another opportunity and were interviewing candidates to fill his passing game coordinator duties under defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

The Cowboys did not retain secondary coach Joe Baker, who had an expiring contract."
