Report: Reeves talking with Cowboys

The 49ers were dumped by one offensive coordinator candidate, Scott Linehan, who had multiple suitors. Could it be happening again with Dan Reeves? ESPN is reporting that Reeves is engaged in talks with the Cowboys about a consultant's role with the team. Reeves' roots are with Dallas -- he was a running back there in the 1960s and began his coaching career there under Tom Landry in the 1970s. There certainly would be plenty of reason to return to Big D. If Reeves gets crossed off the 49ers' list -- and the ESPN story suggests he will -- it looks like they are deciding between Hue Jackson and Jeff Jagodzinski. Or arranging more interviews... Oh, and Dallas area beatwriters: Have fun with all the Vick-to-Cowboys rumors ...
