    Niners make lucrative bid to retain Turner

    There were no numbers posted but I found it interesting the 49er's would try to keep Turner from interviewing for the Cowboys job.

    The San Francisco 49ers are offering Norv Turner a lucrative incentive package in his contract in a bid to persuade him to remain and continue developing quarterback Alex Smith, rather than interviewing for the Dallas Cowboys' head-coaching position, according to sources.
    Seeking a replacement for retired head coach Bill Parcells, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones interviewed San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips through the morning and into the early afternoon Friday. Phillips also discussed the team's personnel with Parcells, who has also been offering Jones his opinion on the coaching candidates.
    Jones is expected to interview New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs on Saturday and then Turner sometime after Saturday's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., where Turner and the 49ers coaching staff are working.

    If Norv Turner is smart he should take the extra cash San Francisco is offering and stay put.
    He's proven he's a much better Coordinator than he is a head coach and I'm actually surprised Jerry Jones would even consider him for the job.

    I couldnt agree more. I think that jerry jones is quickly approaching al davis as the worst owner in the nfl. I think the 49ers arent to far away from being a playoff contendor espically with how week the nfc is. But if Turner does feel the need to go to Dallas and deal with the Jerry Jones and T.O. bullshit more power to him.
