    AP: Cowher won't coach in 2009

    Cowher won't coach in 2009
    Associated Press
    Sunday, January 4, 2009

    NEW YORK -- Bill Cowher doesn't plan to coach in the NFL next year, and will stay with CBS Sports as a studio analyst.

    Cowher was recently wooed by the New York Jets, but said during "The NFL Today" on Sunday that he's taking it "year to year."

    "It's a privilege and an honor to be a head coach in the National Football League," Cowher said. "And I have been flattered about the attention, but the timing right now is not right. I don't plan on coaching next year."

    The Super Bowl winning coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, Cowher took himself out of the running as a candidate for the Jets job on Dec. 30. He also was a candidate for the vacant Cleveland job, but asked to be taken off the list.

    CBS Sports will broadcast the 2010 Super Bowl in Miami.

    I thought Cowher had family commitments that were limiting his location and hours. Have those commitments gone away? I thought he moved to NC for his daughters if I remember correctly. Does anyone know the story?

    Cowher has quite a reputation and people like him, but the Steelers seem to be doing just fine without his input so I have to wonder how important a Head Coach is for an organization if they have the right people already in place.
