New rumor....Norv Turner

I have always loved this guy, I hope the rumor is true, that the Cowboys are interested in him.

By the way this is from Mike Fisher, and he has never lied about anything.

Great if he is the head coach ... yet would be swell to have him as the OC

Come on my friend, he's never been a good HC, but he has been a great OC.

Lmao at this whole thing, will JJ want to pay him like a HC, I don't think so.

HA HA!

It;s only good if Jerry Jones keeps his hands out of the cookie jar...but he won't .

Wait a minute, didn't he quit the Cowboys and go to the Redskins? Don't really care much for that!

I believe his contract was up, and he was not asked to stay.

I would be more than happy to have Norv as our new OC.
I would be worried about he and JG butting heads a little, but I think that would be less of a "real" issue, and more of an issue that gets blown WAYYYYY out of proportion by the media and creates another huge distraction we do not need.

However, at least Norv understands the run/pass balance and clock management. Having him on the sidelines would be a steadying hand that the Cowboys' ship needs.

I'm not sure Jason would hire him, nobody wants to be looking over their shoulder all the time.

Anybody who liked the 90's Cowboys loved this guy, but that was a long time ago. Time passes us all, an time probably has passed Norv by.

After all, who would want to see Zampeze come back after all these years.

Great answer, you could be right, but Norv would have to swallow a lot of pride to come to the Cowboys again.

I still like Norv, and I think he could help Jason a lot....but Calahan has done a good job with the O-line. I'm not sure how to fit Norv in?

Jason's offense put up almost 30 a game, maybe he is really doing a great job. Its the defense who has sucked, yes I know way to many injuries.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman recently joined Mike Fisher and Nathan Wood on KRLD-FM to talk about the team. Here are some highlights.

On if the Cowboys should think about bringing in Norv Turner as their offensive coordinator:

ďI donít think thereís anybody better than Norv Turner because I know what he meant to my career and Iíve seen what heís done elsewhere with far lesser talent. But I donít think itís quite as simple as what some might think even though he and Jason (Garrett) are close. The reason I say that is the Cowboys had an opportunity to hire Norv as head coach before they hired Wade Phillips (in 2007), and at the 11th hour they decided to hire Wade."

On Jerry Jones' history of  pairing existing staffers with new head coaches:

ďI felt that (was problematic) when I was playing, even as much as I liked a number of our assistant coaches who were with me while I was playing for the Cowboys. We replaced head coaches but the assistants never left. A number of those guys stayed, and I never agreed with it then."

IRVING, Texas -- Our report from the end of the Dallas Cowboys that has ownership considering an amicable retirement for 73-year-old defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and an elevation of his lieutenant Rob Marinelli was always a "consideration'' and is still in play.

What's the holdup? What are the factors involved? There are a few of them.

*"Jerry Jones has almost always been very slow to fire people,'' a source close to the Cowboys owner tells me. "He doesn't like to do it. He doesn't want to do it.''

*Kiffin is still at work at Valley Ranch -- on Wednesday he was still in his office past 9 p.m. preparing for the April NFL Draft -- and he has no desire to retire even after his defense struggled as Dallas finished 8-8.

"I got a lot left in me, even though we had some rough (games),'' Kiffen recently told me. "Yeah. I'm a coach. I want to be back.''

*I'm told Kiffin has a second year of "considerations'' as part of the contract he signed upon coming to Dallas last spring. That money doesn't have to be a Jones blockade to change, of course. But it's different that Kiffin having what some people think is a "one-year deal'' that can simply not be renewed.

*National reports that Marinelli was automatically going to leave Dallas to join close friend Lovie Smith in Tampa Bay were always bogus because Marinelli remains under contract here and can only break his contract if elevated to a head-coaching job elsewhere. He does not wish to stride over the fallen body of another close friend and mentor in Kiffin; that's why any change must ideally be amicable.


There's another wrinkle here, though: What if Marinelli doesn't especially want to be the defensive coordinator here? What if he wants to fulfill his duty to the Cowboys as defensive-line coach and then maybe next season make the move to Tampa?

*Interestingly, while Kiffin is at work and while our report on Chris Boniol's departure from Valley Ranch solidifies special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia's spot, offensive coordinator Bill Callahan -- who I reported two weeks ago joined Kiffin "on thin ice'' -- has been conspicuously absent from Cowboys HQ some days.

The Cowboys could eventually turn their offensive attention to Norv Turner. And defensively, depending on what happens with Kiffin and Marinelli, candidates for the coordinator job figure to include fired Lions coach Jim Schwartz and ex-Dallas defensive back Ray Horton.

Norv Turner - C - Free Agent
The Baltimore Sun reports Norval Turner is a candidate for the Ravens' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Turner made the most of his limited weapons in Cleveland, and would be an ideal fit for big-armed Joe Flacco. Although the Browns all but abandoned the ground game in 2013, Turner also has a long history of successfully running the ball, coaching the league's rushing champ five separate times. He'd be an improvement on Jim Caldwell

Nothing has been written in stone, I think he still might show up here.

I'd sure like to know where he would fit in?

Well he won't fit in, he's now with the Vikings.
