According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, could be announced as the new Cowboys head coach by Wednesday.

Turner and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had what was described as a 'great' meeting on Monday. Turner also seemed very enthusiastic about the possibility of returning to Dallas.

"The first thing is, it was really exciting for me. It’s the first time I’ve been in this building since I was apart of this organization many years ago. We talked a little bit about everything, it’s a great opportunity, its one of the great organizations in all of sports. I had a chance to visit with Jerry and get a real good idea of what he’s thinking,” Turner said.

Turner is considered Dallas' top candidate according to multiple Dallas media sources.

When asked about being the front runner for the job, Turner said, “I think the guys who have come in and talked are very qualified. I want a chance to come in and talk and I know what Jerry is looking for and its certainly as big a decision as you can make. I’m excited I had a chance to visit.”

On Friday, the 49ers made a lucrative bid to retain Turner as their offensive coordinator. However, it looks as though the temptation of returning Dallas and finishing his career there may be an offer that is too good to refuse.
