Cowher To Return To Coaching?

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher is reportedly ready to return to coaching in the NFL.

Cowher’s wish list of teams to are the New York Giants (9-5), Houston Texans (5-9), or the Miami Dolphins (7-7) according to a report from ESPN. The source noted Cowher likes those teams because “those markets represent strong ownership with a good talent base.”

Reports have surfaced that Texans’ coach Gary Kubiak and Dolphins’ coach Tony Sparano are at risk of losing their jobs after mediocre seasons.

Giants’ head coach Tom Coughlin will be in the final year of his contract next season.

Cowher coached the Steelers to a Super Bowl title in 2005 and has a career coaching record of 149-90-1.

He is currently a CBS Sports NFL analyst and has been working there since 2007.

Cowher has publicly said he would be open to hearing what is available, but would not comment until the season is over.

    Remember when Cowher said he would not coach anywhere else when he left Pittsburgh.

    Who cares! He was the longest tenured head coach in any sport to not win a title, until he finally won one a few years ago. He is overrated to say the least. If it wasn’t for his jaw, and the fact that he was from the Pittsburgh area, he would’ve been fired probably after his 7th season. Good luck to anyone that hires him!!!!

    Good luck to whereever you go Bill !!!!!

    He is better than this bum Tomlin…… and don’t talk about his superbowl title. That was still Cohwer’s team and the Roony’s. We have so much more talent than anyone else, yet we will still come up short. Tomlin’s clock mangement and nonaggressivness in big games is the worst!!!

    Come back to Pittsburgh BILL!!!!!!!

    Perhaps the most overrated coach in the history of professional football. No, Tomlin is not Noll, but Cowher is no Tomlin, either. He and Parcells would make a great couple in Miami: two egotists in charge.

  6. Sal says:

    Who cares. Cowher was a moron. He brought the city one Super Bowl in 15 years. He was a loudmouth which was entertaining to watch, but completely inefficient.
