Bill Cowher once offered former Steelers player and current radio analyst Tunch Ilkin the team's offensive line coach job. Ilkin turned the job down because of the time commitments...
Ilkin lost his wife to breast cancer earlier this year, so he may-be looking for another challenge in-life, to fill the lonely hours:
my fiancee's 30+ month battle aginst the same disease ended last week, so I am beginning to understand how the idle time drives you crazy

I had a chance run-in with Ilkin a few years ago, during training camp at Latrobe, and from what I saw, he might add a much-needed 'snarl' to the O-line
