Jason Smith: “Lincoln Riley is the Pied Piper, he is ‘IT’ in college football. Riley at 35 is earmarked for the National Football League. It’s going to be a feeding frenzy after this year for him and Riley is going to have ANY job he wants. His image is growing, he’s young, and the players relate to him. If you want him, you’re going to have to do more than just interview him, you’re going to have to offer a full court press. If the Cowboys have another year where they underachieve, Jerry Jones is going to say ‘Whatever you want, you’re the Quarterback Whisperer, you’re going to turn Dak into a superstar, and you’re going to be coaching the marquee team in the NFL.’” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)
