Dan Reeves Already Out at Valley Ranch

Cowboys: Both sides agreed Reeves would not join the organization.

A source confirmed Wednesday afternoon that Dan Reeves left the organization.

Reeves official hire, or role with the organization was never formally announced, but we're told he had an office at the Cowboys complex and had been working directly with Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

The source said, "there were issues."

Reeves apparently quit over a philosophical issue with Jones.

Rich Dalrymple, the Dallas Cowboys Public Relations Director issued this statement Wednesday evening, "We had two very good days of dialogue with Dan Reeves, and both the Cowboys and Dan had an interest in working together. 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 played for the Cowboys in the late '60 and early '70's before joining the team as an assistant coach under Tom Landry.

After his Cowboys career, Reeves went on to be a head coach for the New York Giants, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons.
