Ex- Falcons coach Dan Reeves has been unsuccessful trying to contact Michael Vick to offer support.
"I've even written, and I've tried to make appointments to see him in prison, but they never got back to me," Reeves told FanHouse, sounding more perplexed than perturbed by the situation.
"I don't know if he doesn't want to talk to me because he's embarrassed or what," said Reeves, who lives in Atlanta, where he coached Vick for the first three seasons of his career. "I don't know, but I want him to know that I'm on his side. I can't do anything more than I'm trying to do.
"If he's looking for somebody to stand up for him and to be a father figure and not try to make a buck like most of the people around him are doing -- you know, I just want to help him. I wish he would call me."
