If his most recent comments on the subject are any indication, Dan Reeves has thrown his hat in the proverbial ring for NFL head-coaching jobs.
As the NFL head-coaching carousel continues to churn, with four coaches fired since the end of the regular season, Reeves, who last coached the Falcons in 2003, told SIRIUS NFL Radio on Wednesday that he would be open to a return to the sidelines.
“I’m definitely interested,” Reeves said. “I want to see what’s out there. I definitely would be interested in getting back into coaching. I know that sounds crazy when you board a plane in Newark [N.J.] like I did Monday morning, about 7:30 Monday morning, landed in Atlanta and turned on the radio and three coaches had been fired while I was in the air. So why in the world would someone want to get into a business like that? But, you know, it’s in your blood [and] I can’t get it out.”
Reeves had nine playoff appearances in 23 seasons as coach of the Broncos, Giants and Falcons and made three trips to the Super Bowl. He holds a 201-174-2 career record, including 11-9 in the playoffs.
