Norv the Leading Candidate

norv-turner.pngUpdate: ESPN radio is reporting Turner turned down the 49ers offer. Not looking good. 

The Dallas Star-Telegram is reporting that 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner is the leading candidate to replace Bill Parcells. The 49ers reportedly have made a substantial offer to keep Turner from even interviewing with the Cowboys. But Turner will still interview with the Cowboys on Sunday and has emerged as the favorite to coach the team, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

Well it seems we are down to the wire. If the reports are accurate and Turner is the leading candidate, then all comes down to what Turner feels is the best situation for him. But the outcome for 49ers fans doesn’t look good. If you haven’t already start preparing for an offense without Turner calling the plays. The leading candidate to replace Turner should he bolt for Dallas, is current wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who was the Cardinals offensive coordinator back in 2003.

  1. Shit

  2. I seriously cant believe this! Why the hell would this guy want to leave the 49ers? We have a great young nucleus. Plus he lives in the bay area! If he leaves he’s making a huge mistake.

    – 49er for life

  3. nolan and company are suckin it up at the senior bowl,maybe this is norv trying to tell jerry jones that he isn’t the best choice.

  4. nolan sucks at caoching college students

  5. why would he leave?he’s only going to coach there for one year and it’s not like he had success as a head coach the last two times he’s tried it.

  6. Doesn’t he know that he is unsuccessful as a head coach?

  7. man I hope mike nolan doesn’t coach the niners this year like he is coaching the senior bowl.

  8. in coaching the senior bowl he is trying to scout players not win a game.

    and man if turner leaves i hope the cowboys are horrible next year.

  9. allright the senior bowl is over,now we have to wait for the big news about turner.

  10. that 19 year old from louisville might e a good pick-up for the niners D.brandon meriweather is a stud,he is very fast and can cover like nobody’s buisness,he also plays safety and corner,jay moore is also a stud he had three sacks and two forced fumbles.all these guys would be good pick-ups.

  11. 1.laron landry
    2.levi brown
    3.amobi akoye
    4.brandon meriweather
    5.jordan palmer(backup for a.smith)

  12. nfl networks adam schefter just reported that norv turner doesn’t want to coach very longer and that the dallas job will be a perfect choice.lets just all hope he is wrong.

  13. the way the north ran all over the south ,i hope this isnt a sign for our new defensive line coach is gonna suck.get a hole NEW staff.norv turner is going to dallas becauce he knows the niners are going to suck!!

  14. do we play dallas next year?

  15. Wow first off people need to stop reading into the senior bowl so much. They don’t coach the game to win the coach it to tryout the talent. 2nd fuck the cowboys! 3rd everyone that is dooming next years season already please stop being niner fans we really don’t need you. 4th Go niners!

  16. in football,(AND A LOT OF SPORTS) all the athletes are all over paid second you got players like CRY BABY TO,DREW ROSENHOUSE AND S.SAMUALS WITH A TATOO THAT SAYS PAY ME THERE IS ALSO CLEMENTS.THEY ALL WANNA BE THE HIGHEST PAID PLAYER.PLUS THEY HAVE A UNION THAT ALREADY PAYS FOR MOST OF THERE INJURIES AND DENTAL(benifits )AND ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GET PAID .WHAT THEY NEED TO DO IS PAY THE REFS A LITTLE MORE FOR SOME GLASSES TO SEE THE FIELD GOALS.THEN THEY GET MONEY FOR INSENTIVES AND COMERCIALS ASK REGGIE BUSH.OUR COUNTRY IS IN A NATIONAL DET! AND ALL PLAYERS WANNA DO IS GET PAID.im going bowling on sundays-its less stressing and cost less.

  17. Knew they should have gone after morningwig last year.

    Nolan has put so much pressure on himself and the team to succeed next year and I just can’t see it happening with a Alex Smith on his 3rd offense in 3 years.

  18. does anyone know what jerry sullivans record was as an offensive cordinator.was he good or did he get fired?

  19. Fuck him. Let him go. Hope he goes 0-16 next year and T.o. bitches the whole time making it more misserable for him. He wants to leave, Good He has no loyalty. We don’t need him. Sullivan will run the same offense anyway. Its not like Turner called the greatest offensive games last year. We weren’t blowin anybody out. FUCK HIM

  20. FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY US MAN WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALex is never gonna develop into the qb we want him to be if none of our fucking coordinators stick around shit man!!!!!!!!!

  21. I think Norv is as good as gone… I he wants to retire in a couple of year he is going to get his money from jerry jones… Norv is bitch that is why he wants to leave the 49ers he is just filling the position until the cowgirls get their real H.C… Jones will make all the decisions and may even play quarter back next season

  22. God, some of you motherfuckers are whiny, nervous, bitches. If Turner goes, someone else will step in. It’s not the end of the fucking world. There’s a number of offensive minds out there, some of whom probably haven’t even really been discovered. I’d love Turner to stay, but if he doesn’t they may find someone who’s an even better fit. When Young replaced Montana everyone thought it was the end, and look what happened.

    Relax mother fuckers, Alex Smith will improve each year, and it’s not because Turner is holding his hand the whole time.

  23. Eddie…the Cards were ranked 27th offensively with Sullivan as OC, but he did get Boldin over 1000 yards receiving and ROY.

  24. thanks erickson.

  25. All I know is that Jerry Sullivan is great at developing WRs. Not sure if he was a good OC down here in AZ because the talent, head coaching, and ownership sucks. Lots of teams covet him though.

    I think Jim Fassel should be considered a backup as well. Seems to be in the same mold as Turner. Good to great OC, sucks as a head coach.

  26. dennis green or as a long shot maybe steve mariucci.or maybe gary reynolds he is an offensive assistant for 4 years at seatle.byt they have said jerry sullivan too.so i dont know.

  27. If he goes it will not be goo for smith to have a third oc in s yearss

  28. thanks troy ackman,if norv turner leaves,maybe we will get better with someone else.we need to stop running it every two plays and then call a screen pass,we are not the eagles.who ever we get has to get keep the passing game in check.anyway whens the last time norv turners been a coach in the superbowl!

  29. we need dick vermeil

  30. if norv leaves and sulivan takes over there will be more emphassis on the pass considering he is a great wide receiver coach. bombs away niners. lets do this, no matter who the coordinator is

  31. if norv leaves imma spit at him!! where gonna suck again! man i ahte those damn cowboys!!!!

  32. Eh…no big deal. I know how important he is right now, but thsi stuff happens every year to teams and they still pull through. The Colts have no defense and the Bears have a piece of shit QB, but they are both in the Super Bowl. We’ll be fine hopefully. Athletic talent is the name of the game in the NFL with coaching second. Plus, we’ll find somebody. So…eh. I’ll get over it.

  33. All I can say is I hope he stays. Not going to cringe until it’s final. Lets hope he stays for Alex’s sake….. (Not a consdieration for Norv, just something Alex would be happy about)

  34. consideration….darn fingers

  35. norv is as good as gone,until all of you guys get that through your heads expect suck next year,I had faith when we had norv,now smith is as good as dead,they should of retired the whole forty-niners organization after the 94 season.this organization is going down the crap hole.now we can join the cleveland browns and detroit lions never winning any games club.you guys who say the forty niners aren’t going to suck next year think that anyone can just win the superbowl…. don’t expect this team to win the devision,don’t expect them to win any games next year…I don’t kn ow how you guys can just keep talking like the forty niners are the top dawgs when these guys couldn’t beat the cardinals at home(with norv)now that norv is gone thse guys probably couldn’t even beat DUKE.SFGIANTS4LIFE

  36. I think norv spent a little to much time in san fran and now he is a faggot because he’s goin to dallas.NORV this is like sleeping with your best friends girlfriend that’s how this feels…wait you wouldn’t know about sleeping with girls because your a faggot dallas coach.

  37. DRAFT BRADY QUINN!!TRADE ALEX SMITH FOR HIM!!

    IF THE NINERS SUCK THIS YEAR IM GOIING TO BECOME A CHARGERS FAN..

  38. NO WONDER JERRY RICE TALKED SO MUCH CRAP,BECAUSE HE IS TIRED OF SEEING HIS FAVORITE TEAM SUCK.NOW I DON’T BLAME HIM.

  39. IM SICK OF THE NFL,IM READY FOR IT TO GO AWAY.

  40. Didn’t realize the 49ers had so many 12 year old fans.

  41. Since he turned down the offer i think its safe to say that hes leaving the 49ers. Theres no way the 49ers will offer him another deal for more money. I seriously can’t believe hes leavin just to coach for one year!!! It don’t matter though because we’re still using Norv’s system even if he leaves. Plus if we just add some more talent in the offseason we can win the division

    49er for life

  42. How is he a leading canidate if he has not interviewed yet?

  43. i think since norv turner is going to abandon us that we should go after quarterback coach from greenbays tom clements he has been in the league for ten years.he also was the quarterbacks coach for the steelers from two 2000 till 2003.and in kansas city too.

  44. Did I miss something? Why is everyone thinking Norv left already…. I didnt relize Jerry Jones made him head coach…. You all are acting as if he already got hired, calm down I guess you all believe rumors and speculation…. Everyone in this bitch is going to feel stupid and awallow all your negative ass words if he stays here. Faithfull right?

  45. Did anybody on here ever order the 49erholic gear?, I wanted to know how does it fit and if any of it is cheesy.

  46. i think the thing you missed was he did not take the offer from the niners and that he only wants to coach a year or two more before retiring.i think turner will take it because he doesnt want to be known as a failure as a head coach and he is going to give it one more try and i think listening to people on this site calling him a failure at being a head coach would give him more insperation to become a head coach for dallas.plus if jerry jones wants him and he wants to go than bye bye turner.dont hire head coaches as offense or defensive cord.because you know the next time someone gets fired that coaches name will always come up.thats why you hire young guys with little experiance.

  47. faithful…. word… if he leaves, the cowboys will suck, and we got weapons to work with so i ain’t really trippin unless we hire some shitty coordinator, which i dont think we will… we’ll be alright.

  48. when is norv gonna decide allready? IM tired of waiting around even though the answer is obviousley yes.I just want to hear the news.

  49. I’ve realized something we didn’t loose frank gore!!we still have the hoss frank the tank gore.as long as we have frank we can’t go wrong,and look at it this way the cowboys are gonna blow balls this year with norv, probably the suckiest head coach of all time (besides Erickson)and the former quarterback as there offensive coordinator,not to mention we have 41 mill in cap space and alot of draft picks.I think all the niners are gonna show norv that he should of stayed with the future champions of the nfl and the champions of the nfc west.norv who?we got nolan.49ERS MOTHERFUCKER

  50. YOU GUYS DON’T NEED TO WORRY.FUCK NORV.HE’S A QUITTER AND NOT A WINNER,I THINK THE NINERS GOT A REAL TASTE OF WINNING LAST YEAR AND I DON’T THINK THAT’S GONNA CHANGE BY PUNKASS NORV TURNER GOIN,IT’S ALL CAUSE OF FRANK GORE,WITH FRANK GORE AND A HIGHLY IMPROVED BADASS DEFENSE…NFC WEST BELONGS TO IT’S RIGHTFUL OWNER THE 5 TIME SUPERBOWL WINNING SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS.STAY CLASSY.

  51. IT REALLY SUCKS TO BE A NINERS FAN RIGHT NOW.NO DEFENSIVE CORDINATOR AND NO OFFENSIVE CORDINATOR(IF NORV LEAVES).we have alot of draft picks,that have to be developed.and no canidates yet!this is just another step backwards before we go forward.i think its better if norv leaves,he is only under contrast with us for this cuming up season and then what.we would have to go threw it next year anyway! so dallas just did it earlier for us.i mean i hate dallas as much if not more than the rest of you guys.but this shit happends every year.

  52. well be fine. sullivan is the best wr coach so he knows how to do offense too. anyone we get to put in there will be fine. norve wasnt exactly that tricky when it came to play calling last year. it was run run run run, reverse with gilmore, pass…how did that pass get in there, my bad. its the players that play so ill be fine if they get a new oc. he didnt leave yet but if he does im not gonna cry over losing norv turner. alex smith will get off this year, watch out.
