At least three NFL teams have called CBS analysts and Super Bowl winning head coach Bill Cowher with coaching offers this season only to be turned down. Cower was on the Dan Patrick Show today and, with Bonnie Bernstein subbing as host, was asked whether his coaching offers were over or under two.
Cowher laughed, then said, “Oh, it’s over,” while not specifying which teams were interested.
As for coming back after a five-season hiatus from the coaching ranks as an analyst for CBS, Cowher added:
“I don’t know if I’ve ever been that ready, honestly . . . Let me tell you, if there’s any doubt, then there’s no doubt you’re not ready to come back. You have to be all in to take that job.”
Cowher acknowledged miss some aspects of his 15-year tenure as head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but said:
“That’s all I did my whole life. Right now I have a chance to have an offseason, a chance to do some traveling and do some things I’ve never had a chance to do before, and to be honest with you I’m enjoying that . But with CBS I’m still able to be part of the game, watching the game, watch it evolve, still be somewhat on the inside, but it’s not the all-encompassing part of it.”
