The Bill Cowher chatter has started up again, as today on ESPN there’s a story about Cowher’s return to the sidelines in 2011, and what teams may be in the running to land the coach if he does indeed return.
The teams in the running according to ESPN include the New York Giants, Houston Texans, or Miami Dolphins, two teams that won’t make the playoffs, and the other (the Giants) took a serious hit yesterday in blowing a 24-3 lead to the Eagles and losing on the last play.
Cowher still seems to be happy as an analyst for CBS. There’s no doubt that he’ll be back at some point on the sidelines, but it’s been a tough year for him personally with the passing of his wife Kaye. For now, with a career coaching record of 149-90-1, there’s no hurry for him to rush into a bad coaching situation like many have done in the past (Mike Shanahan anyone?).
