Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells retired from coaching football this morning. The Dallas Morning News feels that there are two possibilities as replacements for Parcells. One being San Diego defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. The other being San Francisco offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
Turner joined San Francisco on January 17, 2006. Turner was the offensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys on Jimmy Johnson's staff when Dallas won back to back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Turner got much of the credit for their success.
He is also credited for the improvement in second year quarterback Alex Smith and has a good reputation for developing young quarterbacks in the NFL.
Of course, much of this is likely to be speculation.
