I think you answered your own question. Farrior flat out stated Cowher over ruled LeBeau last season and they butted heads on a few occasions. I'm not sure if it was Grimm and Whisenhunt pressuring Cowher into signing Okobi. Heck, I don't think Whisenhunt and Grimm pressured Cowher into doing anything when it came to this team.
After hearing how Farrior explained the situation between Cowher and LeBeau, I would be willing to bet Whisenhunt and Grimm had to ask Cowher politely before they broke wind.
