Steelers Owner Doesn’t Think Cowher Will Coach Anywhere in 09

From: Cleveland Plain Dealer

There is no agreement between the Pittsburgh Steelers and former coach Bill Cowher that would preclude Cowher from becoming coach of the Browns, Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney said Tuesday. But Rooney believes Cowher will not return to coaching in 2009, with the Browns or any team. “We got along and continue to get along, but I have never taken the position that he shouldn’t coach,” Rooney said in a telephone conversation Tuesday.

“I will say to you that every time I talk to him and this subject comes up — and the subject does come up almost every year at this time — he says that he’s very, very happy with what he’s doing, where he is. “It would not surprise me if he said he wasn’t going to coach. It would surprise me the other way because he tells me that every time I talk to him and the subject comes up.” Cowher is regarded as the Browns’ No. 1 candidate to replace Romeo Crennel if Crennel is released after the season.

  1. Dan B says:

    The Chin will never coach in Cleveland. A. Why would he want to? As disfunctional as this team has become who would want the headache? B. He would never as long as Dan Rooney owns the Steelers. Out of respect for the Rooneys, Cowher won’t coach here. Where does that leave us? Who knows, I love Marty, but he is getting up there in age. I would love to see Marty as GM and Cowher as coach, but like fairy tales
    it is a fantasy!
