January 18, 1998

DALLAS (AP) _ Former UCLA coach Terry Donohue reportedly has interviewed for the Dallas Cowboys’ coaching vacancy created by Barry Switzer’s firing, while Lou Holtz has taken himself out of the picture.

Dallas radio station KLIF reported Saturday that Donohue has discussed the Cowboys job with club officials. In his favor is that Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman played for Donohue at UCLA.

Neither Donohue nor Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could be reached for comment.

As for Holtz, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram quoted a source close to him as saying the former Notre Dame coach won’t return to coaching. The newspaper quoted the source as saying that Holtz has too many things going on in his private life, including caring for his sick wife.
