Cowboys: Reeves won’t join organization

It appeared — and was reported — that former NFL head coach Dan Reeves would join the Dallas Cowboys in some manner. That momentum was halted Wednesday, when the team announced the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a contract.

“We had two very good days of dialogue with Dan Reeves, and both the Cowboys and Dan had an interest in working together,” the Cowboys said in a statement. “By Wednesday afternoon, we were unable to reach an agreement on all of the details of a contract, and both parties were comfortable with the fact that Dan would not be joining the organization. Jerry (Jones) holds Dan in the highest regard as a friend and a tremendous contributor to the history of the Cowboys and the NFL.”

Reeves, 65, had appeared at Valley Ranch this week, and it was believed the two sides were discussing a role on the Cowboys’ staff as a possible consultant, according to the team’s official Web site.
