Could Norv Turner be Dallas’ next coach?

Jan 22, 2007 at 10:11 AM--


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.

John Lynch on 49ers' draft secrecy: "We just wanted to see how far it could go"

It was maddening for San Francisco 49ers fans. It was maddening for all NFL fans and even much of the media. Social media has not been a fun place since the team traded up to the No. 3 overall pick on March 26. There was so much rampant speculation surrounding what the 49ers might do, and the team's brass was playing it close to the vest, refusing to offer any hints. There were reports that even those inside the building, like coaches and some front-office personnel, didn't even know which direction head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were leaning. Even CEO Jed York joked on Thursday that he had no idea. That, of course, turned out to be a lie as York proceeded to further mess with the fanbase with some cryptic tweets. "We were in the bunker,"



Jason Smith throws out wild theory that 49ers could trade Trey Lance for Aaron Rodgers

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle



Brooks: Trey Lance could make 49ers offense 'nearly indefensible'

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York recently told NBC Sports Bay Area that there is no rush to get rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, onto the football field. That's why the team held onto Jimmy Garoppolo, who has two years remaining on his contract. York didn't guarantee that Garoppolo would play out that contract in its entirety with the 49ers. But if that's what it took to eventually get the most out of Lance, allowing the young quarterback the luxury of sitting and learning, then ownership is willing to pay Garoppolo for that privilege.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't say if team's draft decision has been made

Do the San Francisco 49ers know who they're taking with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft? Possibly, but if they do, they're not going to tell the public before the pick is announced. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters for around 30 minutes on Monday regarding the upcoming draft, which will begin Thursday evening (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT) in Cleveland, Ohio. The main topic of discussion, of course, was what the 49ers will do at pick 3, and where they stand at this point in the process. There have been reports in recent days that the 49ers have made a decision and that they still are debating their decision, but either way, Shanahan wasn't about to give any hints. "So, do we know exactly who we want? Maybe,
