I'm a newb here..... and I'm NOT trying to stir-up rumors or gossip.....

..... but I've heard 2 local Pixburgh on-air personalities (neither of whom I'm very fond-of ), discussing the possibility of Bill Cowher retiring, in the last 3 hours:
is this just BS?

I've also heard the speculation and it's exactly that....speculation. It was discussed the other night on the Nightly Sports Show Down. Cowher gave absolutely no hint of retiring. It was brought up for the sake of conversation. Pure and simple.

Cowher will be our coach for at least another decade. Cowher got the monkey off his back, but I know in a month he is gonna want 2,3 and 4 rings. And I think with the way we have drafted in the 2000's and hopefully some good signings of our FA, we will contend for the Title for years...

I cannot think of a real believeable reason why he would do this.

Cowher is in Pittsburgh for a while longer yet.

Fedko during PXI's televised parade show, and during Madden's radio show, but I hate to 'advertise' for either of these characters.
It was brought up for the sake of conversation.
I sure hope-so.....

Its all speculation.. Cowher isnt going anywhere.. He got his trophy, and gave it to the Rooneys.. but now that he has the monkey off his back.. he can just get back to coaching and have fun again.

His driving force was getting that elusive 5th trophy for Pittsburgh..so now he can concentrate on getting the next one w/ not so much pressure.

Cowher never said anything, so why else would it be brought up? It would be different If he hinted he was debating on retiring. It's pure speculation. Helps ratings. No offense, but your making this story way bigger than it should be. It's not even a "story" to be honest.

Personally, I'm still trying to figure out how Fedko and Alexander still have a job in this city.

seeing the look on Cowher's face today during the parade tells me there is absolutely no truth to this

I 'laughed' at Fedko's report, but Madden's story said something about "reports-close-to Cowher/Fox Chapel" , and it made me think it could be true.....
:dang:
As I stated earlier, I WASN'T trying to stir-the-pot on the day of this parade, just thinking maybe I was that far outta-the-loop.....

..... maybe Shop-n-Save can hire them as bag-boys?

Oh please don't take my comments the wrong way. I'm not accusing you of stirring the pot. I just feel your looking into this story further than you should be. I don't want you to get an ulcer over this story, that's all. :wink02:

As for Alexander being a bag boy, won't happen. He wouldn't be able to bash Steeler fans on a regular basis like he normally does on the show down.

I can't think of a reason for him to leave, other than family.. or do they live in Pittsburgh to? Isn't he like 40 something? Or is that someone else?

He is 40 something, and I am pretty sure that his family lives in Pittsburgh. (98%confident)

The story goes that he may retire, so he can take his family to a southern state, where his girls can play college basketball, then he would come-back in a few years to resume his coaching career.....

I can't believe he would do that, but the basketball story-line is plausible:
I think Bill Cowher is 48-49.....

Cowher is playing with house money now for the next 5 years of his career (based on Billick still having a job 5 seasons after the Ravens won). Why leave?

My recollection is the only SB winning coaches that quit were Lombardi & Walsh (after multiple wins), Vermeil (who sort of got forced out to placate Martz), and Jimmy Johnson (who sort of got fired). The Cowher-Rooney relationship is not exactly comparable to Johnson-Jerry Jones.

Cowher is going nowhere.

I think Bill Cowher after finally getting that sweet taste of a Superbowl victory isn't going to be happy with just one.

As long as Mr. Rooney is in charge and Cowher is fielding competitive teams he'll be the head coach in Pittsburgh for years to come.

That's just plain stoopid noise.

Al Davis has announced he will be selling the Raiders. George Bush is resigning as POTUS. Madonna is doing a porno. Iran is conducting joint military operations with Israel. John Madden now boarding AA Flight 385 to Honolulu.

And...Bill Cowher has resigned as HC of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Thats the long and short of it right there.

I think Madden has finally started to make crap up because so few people listen to him.

Heh.. Fedko though, man, there's a blast from the past. (Haven't lived in Pittsburgh for about 6 years now. It's funny how the Pgh. news people never change).

I heard something like this but it stated that he would move south AFTER his youngest girl graduated from HS.
