SEATTLE – That didn’t take long.

Former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard landed a job with the Dallas Cowboys, according to reports from 710-AM’s Gee Scott and the NFL Network’s Adam Schefter on Monday.

The precise nature of the role wasn’t completely clear. Schefter said Richard will serve as the Cowboys’ passing-game coordinator, while Scott said Richard would play that role in addition to being defensive backs coordinator.

The Seahawks hired Ken Norton Jr. to replace Richard last week.
