Not denying that this is right, but when was this said? Was this the car show that you mentioned a while back?
Big Ben has said as much, that even the loyalty to the Rooneys thing would not interfere.
Could Bill Cowher become the next coach of the Cleveland Browns? His former QB, Ben Roethlisberger, wouldn't rule it out.
Roethlisberger was asked Wednesday if he thought Cowher would never coach the Browns out of loyalty to the Rooney family, which has owned the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1933.
It was as though Roethlisberger anticipated the question and was eager to pounce on it. "Only he could tell you that," Roethlisberger said. "Honestly – and I can only talk for a few of the players here – we joke around and say that (Cleveland) could be his No. 1 spot."
Old news..but there's very little obstacles for this to block Lerner from doing this if he wants to give the job to bill.
