Saw something interesting this morning. According to the DC.com Writer’s Block Blog, Former head coach Dan Reeves reportedly told the San Francisco 49ers that he will decline a position on the team in favor of joining the Dallas Cowboys.
No official word as of yet on exactly what that means or even if it’s true, Josh Ellis says it is supposed to be some sort of consulting role that is in the works.
Reeves has coached several teams, but the most notable of which was the Atlanta Falcons. Wade Phillips served as his defensive coordinator in Atlanta and when Reeves was fired during the 2003 season, Phillips was his successor.
Atlanta made a Super Bowl appearance in XXXIII under then head coach Dan Reeves, but lost to the Denver Broncos, another team that Reeves has led in his career. It also would team him together with his son-in-law Joe DeCamillis, who the Cowboys recently hired to run their special teams unit.
He’s always been known as a hard ass, a tough coach that demands a lot from his players, and his character could be a great addition to this team after a year plagued by reports of indiscipline in the Cowboys locker room, practices, and games.
What do you think about bringing in Dan Reeves, and what role do you think he would be best for on this team? Remember that he was interviewing for the OC spot in San Fran, and has a strong offensive background in the league.
Does Garrett stand in the way of him being the OC in Dallas? Should he?
