Cowboys Wanted Reeves to Work a Certain Amount of Hours


The circus seems to only be getting bigger when the comes to the Cowboys, as today’s Dallas Morning News talks about why exactly Dan Reeves didn’t join the team – it had to do with hours in the office.

Dan Reeves said he objected to having a clause put in his contract about the amount of hours he was to work at Valley Ranch. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and Reeves agreed in principle to a multi-year deal that was supposed to start Monday, but the former Cowboys assistant coach and player did not know about the clause. “Oh, definitely, big-time,” Reeves said when asked if he was surprised by the clause. “For someone to question how I’ve done [my time] for a lot of years, I’ve never been questioned. Plus, as a coach, how can you verify that? Nobody punches a clock.”

For a team that hasn’t won a playoff game in 13 years to ask someone like Reeves to punch a time clock is a joke, and it just goes to show where this team is at and why they haven’t been able to be successful for a long time.

    Dan Reeves has impecable carachter. In his 40 plus years in the NFL, he has become an icon. I believe Reeves would have spent MORE than the required time at valley ranch to help this organization. I also believe he was insulted that Jerry Jones insisted he come to work and punch a timeclock. I have no way of knowing what the control issues were, but, If Jerry is going to keep calling all the shots, what’s going to change?
