Bill Cowher, the ex-coach who led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a Super Bowl, hasn’t coached since 2006 but with every year, there’s rumors that he’ll come back.
Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post tweeted that Redskins owner “Dan Snyder has already met with Bill Cowher at least twice.”
And a Washington Times editorial said that Cowher would be a perfect fit for the ailing Washington Redskins, who recently fired coach Mike Shanahan.
“An established coach would bring a proven track record but, in some regard, arrive as damaged goods; a younger assistant doesn’t excite the fan base, but has the opportunity to grow with his team,” it reads. “Bill Cowher, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach: Out of coaching for seven seasons and now a television analyst, Cowher would be a hire players would immediately respect.”
Cowher is currently an analyst with CBS Sports and he’s expressed no interest in coaching in previous years.
