Howard Richards chosen as MU football radio analyst

Former Missouri offensive lineman Howard Richards will serve as the analyst on MU football radio broadcasts, the school announced yesterday. Richards replaces John Kadlec, who retired after spending the past 16 years working with play-by-play man Mike Kelly in the radio booth.

Richards, 51, is a St. Louis native who started 40 consecutive games at right tackle from 1977-80, earning first-team All-Big Eight and second-team All-America honors as a senior. He was a first-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 1981 and spent seven seasons in the NFL. After retiring from football, he spent 13 years with the Central Intelligence Agency on security staffs of four CIA directors.

Richards has a communications degree from MU with an emphasis in radio/television.
