Richard has been the Cowboys’ defensive passing game coordinator and secondary coach for the past two seasons. Prior to Dallas, he spent eight seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, helping develop a secondary that included Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner and Byron Maxwell.
