Turner does not want Garrett as offensive coordinator in Dallas

Feb 7, 2007 at 9:53 AM--


Update: ProFootballTalk.com is now reporting that because of Norv Turner's demands, Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is suddenly a top candidate again.

According to ESPN.com, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, does not feel that Jason Garrett is ready to be an offensive coordinator and that is what is holding up Turner's hire in Dallas. Garrett, who interviewed for the head coaching job in Dallas, was hired, but not as the head coach. He is expected to be the offensive coordinator.

Turner would prefer to make assistant head coach/offensive line coach, Tony Sparano, the offensive coordinator and use Garrett in some other capacity.

Jerry Jones has said that he will not name the Cowboys' next head coach until today at the earliest.

ProFootballTalk.com, a popular rumor site, believes that Jones is looking for someone that he can bully. Turner does not fit that profile.

From ProFootballTalk:
Moreover, a growing number of league insiders believe that Turner is only getting a serious sniff in Dallas because owner Jerry Jones wants a guy whom he can bully, so that Jones can act like the quasi-coach of the team. If this is true, then it's unlikely that Jones will give in to Turner's reported request.

The San Francisco 49ers put in a dominating performance on Sunday as the team beat the New England Patriots 33-6 at Gillette Stadium. The 49ers defense kept the Patriots out of the end zone while hauling in four interceptions. One of those interceptions went into Fred Warner's arms. The third-year linebacker finished the game with seven tackles and a pass defensed to go along with the pick. That was enough for NBC Sports writer Peter King to name Warner among his Defensive Players of the Week. King wrote the following of Warner: "'I try to find a flaw in Fred Warner,' Tony Romo said Sunday. 'I can't.' Warner shined

Fred Warner excited to see what JaMyCal Hasty does with opportunity

JaMycal Hasty earned praise from his defensive teammate, Fred Warner, during training camp. The undrafted free agent running back landed on the San Francisco 49ers practice squad to start the season. The 49ers promoted Hasty to the active roster on October 3. He has just 46 rushing yards on 11 carries this season, but 37 of those yards came during Sunday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams after a high-ankle sprain sidelined Raheem Mostert. "I did mention [Hasty] back in training camp just because we all see him make the cuts," Warner told reporters on Wednesday. "And just the explosiveness that he has when he does touch the rock, it's something that jumps off the field, jumps off the tape." Hasty figures to help contribute to the 49ers' rushing

Peter King names 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo among his Offensive Players of the Week

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a pretty good bounce-back game against the Los Angeles Rams after an embarrassingly poor two quarters of play a week earlier. The 49ers passer finished the game 23-of-33 for 268 yards with three touchdowns. Each of those scores, by the way, was hauled in by three different players. In fact, Garoppolo did a good job of getting everyone involved in the passing game. Eight different players caught at least one pass, with All-Pro tight end George Kittle leading the way with seven receptions for 109 yards and a score. Garoppolo's performance was enough to impress Peter King of NBC Sports, who named the 49ers quarterback among his Offensive Players of the Week. "For a slumping and gimpy Garoppolo, Sunday
