Although heís only 50, Cowher insists he doesnít plan to coach again, but knows better than to completely close the door.

ďIn all honesty, I hope I donít coach again. I have no plans to do it,Ē said Cowher, in Los Angeles to promote DirecTVís NFL Sunday Ticket. ďI donít ever want to say never. I donít want to be a hypocrite. But I have no plans to coach again and I can honestly say I donít see it happening in the near future.Ē

Cowher and his wife, Kaye, have two daughters at Princeton, Meagan and Lauren. And their youngest daughter, Lindsay, is a junior in high school in Raleigh, N.C. He said if the expected offers are made, it would be flattering, but thereís no way heíd consider coaching before Lindsay finishes high school.

ďIím not going to walk out of her life,Ē he said. ďItís nice to have options. Itís hard to say what the future holds. I donít have any long-term plans.Ē

He said all the right words, but he will coach again.

He will... he loves it too much and he's too young to just quit now and watch.

Im actually really happy that he wont coach for atleast the next two years. A lot of people think a team he would go to is the Panthers and since he runs the 3-4 defense, I dont want him to come in here and put a new systme on a bunch of 4-3 players or rebuild.

I highly doubt he would coach their.

That doesn't mean anything. Many people have more than one home.

Very true but to me it doesn't make sense.
The reason he said he quit is to spend some time with his family.
Having a home three hours away from his family just doesn't make sense to me.

But a lot of former players and coaches miss the game and want to return so it shouldn't come as a suprise he may come back.

He just says he wants to watch his last daughter go through her final years of highschool. So in 2-3 years he will most likely be back coaching, unless he's crazy and watches her go through college too.

according to Ben Roethlisberger, some of the Steelers think he will come back to coach the Browns...

I said this back in July when he was rumored to be the choice du jour for the Giants job if/when Coughlin is fired:

I actually think Cowher will be content to do the TV gig for a few years. It's easy money for him to do very little work and he can "recharge" for as long as he feels is necessary before making a comeback, if he desires.

I really think he was sincere in his desire to spend time with his wife and daughters. Anyone who watched the first half of the Steelers season last year could see that his heart wasn't in it and I think it will take him some time to find that passion again.

Plus, I only think he'll come back to the right situation -- strong, competent ownership, control over player/personnel decisions and a tradition of winning. He's too into his own image to risk it by taking on a total rebuilding project that he might not be successful at.

So, in short, I don't think he'll coach in '08 and its too early to speculate which team he eventually ends up with -- if he does in fact decide to coach again. John Madden quit early and never went back. It took Dick Vermeil 15 years to decide he wanted to coach again. There's no guarantee that Cowher is cut from the Parcells/Schottenheimer cloth and feels the need to coach in his bones.


I still believe this is true and dont' think he'll rush back to the NFL just because the Browns job has come open again.

I heard that on NFL Network, and I think it can be a good fit for Cowher. He is going to have a young QB in Brady Quinn, and a pretty young team and needs to have that touch to be a good team.

I actually watched another interview he did for the post gazzette. He said the same thing, that he doesnt plan on coaching again right now. I have no doubt he will come back someday, but it definitely wont be next year or the next...maybe 2011 or 2012, right around the time the Browns will be looking for ANOTHER head coach.

He seemed very happy, and said he was enjoying doing the whole football TV analyst gig. They asked him if he would ever return to coach the Steelers down the road, and he said anything could happen. I see Mike Tomlin doing well, but if he doesnt, I wouldnt be shocked to see BillCo back on the Steelers sidelines.

Its hard to say right now who will need a coach in 3-4 years and what teams he'd be willing to coach for. I dont think he will ever coach the Redskins as long as Snyder is running the show, so maybe the Giants, Cowboys or Browns if they need a coach in a few years.

I think he'll definitely coach again. He loves the game way to much to leave it for a long period of time, I think he'll definitely be back soon. 2 seasons tops.
