NORV’S THE FAVORITE

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner is the leading candidate to become the next coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

Turner interviewed for the job on Sunday, two days after the Niners made a pitch to convince him to stay. He previously served as head coach of the Redskins and Raiders, and offensive coordinator of the Cowboys, Chargers, and Dolphins.

The veteran coach surely relishes the opportunity to play the Redskins twice per year, given that he was the first field boss to be fired by Washington owner Dan Snyder. Snyder bought the team prior to the 1999 season, and dumped Turner 13 games into the 2000 campaign, which was a major disappointment for a team that had sky-high expectations after the addition of free agents like Deion Sanders and Bruce Smith and the arrival of tackle Chris Samuels and linebacker LaVar Arrington, two of the top three picks in the draft that year.

An offer has not yet been made, and terms have not been discussed. But talks are expected to continue.
