Report: Lincoln Riley Remains ‘Strong Candidate’ For Cowboys’ Potential Opening

Lincoln Riley

After the Dallas Cowboys suffered a brutal loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football, the speculation around head coach Jason Garrett continues to swirl.

As a result, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley remains a name that continues to pop up. According to NFL Network reporter Jane Slater, Riley remains a “strong candidate”, along with Urban Meyer and Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott.


As we noted a couple of weeks ago, Riley was recently given the third-best odds to be the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, behind Urban Meyer and Josh McDaniels.

The Oklahoma Sooners are trying to win their fifth-straight Big 12 Championship on Saturday when they play the Baylor Bears, with the winner having a good chance of reaching the College Football Playoff.
