Cowboys Looking At Steeler Coach

In his search to replace Barry Switzer as coach of the Dallas Cowboys, owner Jerry Jones is talking to Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, a TV station reported Saturday night.

The Steelers have given Jones permission to talk to Gailey, Pittsburgh TV station KDKA reported.

"I've had a very busy day. I have asked for permission with one club to have an interview ...with an individual that's coaching in the NFL right now," Jones told KDKA Saturday, but declined to identify the coach.

Gailey has been the Steelers' offensive coordinator for the last two seasons. Switzer resigned from the Cowboys on Jan. 9 after a 6-10 season. Jones hoped to have a new coach by now but says it could be April or later before he finds one he wants.
He's had at least seven interviews with three candidates: former UCLA coach Terry Donahue, former San Francisco coach George Seifert and Green Bay offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis.
