Cowher still getting calls, still not returning to coach

Whatever team gets Bill Cowher to return to coaching will have quite a coup indeed.

That’s because it doesn’t appear the ex-Steelers Super Bowl winning coach will be returning to the sideline any time soon, despite saying he fielded three calls from teams gauging his interest.

Cowher, who serves as a CBS analyst for the NFL, said if he’s not 100 percent prepared for the rigors of a return to the job he won’t.

“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 said on a visit to the Dan Patrick radio show. “I enjoy where I’m at right now ... That’s all I did for my whole life. Right now I have a chance to have an offseason, 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. There’s part of coaching you’ll never replace, and I do miss parts of that.”

Cowher left his Steelers post in 2007, after putting together a 149-90-1 over 15 seasons with the Steelers. Pittsburgh also won Super Bowl XL under Cowher.
