Wed, 09 Jan 2013 21:52:46 -0800

It is not yet known if the Cleveland Browns have made contract with former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach and current CBS television analyst Bill Cowher. The former Steelers head coach indicated earlier this week he is open to returning to coaching, and he worked as an assistant for Clevelnd in the 1990s. New Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was a minority share owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, so he is obviously familiar with Cowher's background and success.

Giants | Bill Cowher not pining for coaching job

Mon, 27 Dec 2010 08:38:51 -0800

Former NFL head coach Bill Cowher said Sunday, Dec. 26, during the CBS pregame show that he is not secretly pining for New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin's job, according to Ralph Vacchiano and Hank Gola, of the New York Daily News. Although he didn't specifically mention Coughlin or the Giants - or any "hypothetical" opening - Cowher did say he roots for no coach to be fired just so he can get a job. "For anyone to insinuate that I have a wish list of coaches to be fired at this time of the year, I have too much respect for the profession," Cowher said. "I know how hard it is. I don't wish for anybody to be fired. And for someone to insinuate that I'm doing that right now is disrespectful to them, and I'm insulted by it. I would not do that to the profession." Cowher, however, didn't specifically deny his oft-reported interest in coaching the Giants or any other team. "I'm not naive to say there won't be change at the end of the year," Cowher said. "But I will address that at the end of the year."

Former NFL head coach Bill Cowher said he misses coaching more and more every year, but he still does not have regrets stepping down, according to Jerry DiPaola, of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "With every year, there becomes a little bit more of a void because you do miss it," Cowher said. A return to coaching remains on Cowher's mind, but it does not consume him. "I am not going to go back into coaching, just to go back into coaching," he said. "It has to be the right situation. And I don't know what the right situation consists of."

Ralph Vacchiano, of the New York Daily News, reports former NFL RB Jerome Bettis claims former NFL head coach Bill Cowher wants to be the next head coach for the New York Giants.
