The wheels in the Bill Cowher saga continue to roll, to the point where already one team is coming out and denying that they have spoken or have had any contact with the former Steelers coach. The Redskins, one team that has been mentioned in rumors that Cowher is talking to about possibly coaching in 2008, released a statement late on Tuesday stating that they have not had any meetings with Cowher.
“No one at the Washington Redskins has had any meetings or discussions with Bill Cowher or anyone else regarding any coaching position with the Redskins,” the team released in a statement.The Skins, along with the Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers were three teams mentioned in a report on Monday that stated that Cowher has already started looking at options for 08, and also has already started putting together some names of people he’d like to have on his staff. The report said that one thing Cowher would require is total control, and that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder would give it to him.
Neither the Browns or Panthers would say anything about the report, as of course with coaches already on staff, the last thing the teams are currently worried about is who is going to coach them in 2008. Washington seems to have been the front runner when it comes to teams that have had the most internal rumblings about Cowher.
The Cowher adventure will for sure continue, as with being the most high profile coach not on a NFL sideline this season, for sure teams will continue to have their names brought up linking them to Cowher and his chance at coaching them in 2008.
