San Francisco 49ers Interview Dan Reeves for Offensive Coordinator

NFLGridironGabSenior Analyst IJanuary 23, 2009

The 49ers may be going a bit old school in their search for a new offensive coordinator, as earlier today they sat down with longtime Denver Broncos coach Dan Reeves and interviewed him for the position.

Reeves met with 'Niners coach Mike Singletary and general manager Scot McCloughan at the team’s facility. The team has yet to fill the coordinator role since firing Mike Martz on Dec. 30

Reeves was a head coach for 23 seasons in the NFL with Denver, the New York Giants and Atlanta. He he has been out of coaching since being replaced by Wade Phillips with three games left in the 2003 season with the Falcons.

The 65-year-old had a 190-165-2 record as a head coach, making the postseason nine times and losing in all four trips he made to the Super Bowl.

He for sure has the experience, as he has won the AP Coach of the Year award twice in his career, getting it for his work in 1993 with the Giants and ’98 with Atlanta. He spent his first 12 years of coaching in Denver.

The team also spoke to Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson Friday about the coordinator job.
