If someone offered you 8-9 million dollars to do a job you've done before in the past, over 1 million where you'd just work one day a week, would you take it?

Thats the "dilemma" bill faces right now. :)

Yeah, but unless he's dabbled in real estate or put a lot of $$ in hedge funds recently, he's sitting on a big ole nest egg right now and doesn't need the money per se. And like you said, he's getting paid a nice little bit of change ($1 million or so) to sit in a comfy studio in a nice suit and spout fonts of football wisdom. No stress...no worries....and the Mrs. is happy. Why give that up? Unless the "competitive fever" strikes and won't relent. And frankly, I don't see that happening.

Steelers fans continued state of denial aside, here are the latest developments:

Marty said he's not coaching again, BUT he'd be interested in working in the FO of a Bill Cowher coached Browns, kind of in the role Parcells has with the Phins. The two are friends, by the by.

Lerner has now made it clear that Cowher is his first choice. Lerner also knows EXACTLY what demands Cowher will make to coach.

Cowher himself has said that Cleveland would be his first choice should he come back.

Crennel will be fired 10 minutes after the Browns last game this year, leaving the position open (and even though the Browns go through a lot of coaches, it doesn't happen EVERY year)

Cowher's contract for TV is up this year.


Time to face up to it, Cowher's heading to Cleveland next year.

Football is in Cowher's blood and coaching the Browns would give him a huge challenge.

Ya never know!!!

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.

Quote:
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.

And soon there after, he'll understand what it felt like to be on the back side of a Steelers arse whoopin' on Sunday.

Bill knows how to win in this league. Hell, he did it with Kordell freaking Stewart as his QB.

Yes, the quote came from his luncheon with the Cleveland Auto Dealers Association.

I'm not sure why people refuse to believe it? I, for one, don't love the idea. The ONLY upside I see is that it instantly renews the rivalry.

i think most people just need a little bit more than your word on it.

this morning shottenhiemer said he would love the idea of being VP and working with bill though and that they have always remained close friends. he gave it a 10% chance he would return to coaching and said he wouldnt rule anything out.

He KEPT Kordell for 7 YEARS as a failed experiment while great defenses were squandered.

If it wasn't for Ben, FG Bill would still be ringless. Let them have him.
We'll still crush the Brownstains twice every year for the next decade.

Besides, the real reason the Rooneys shitcanned Bill was he wanted shares in the franchise + $8 M a year to keep on coaching - buh bye.

I watched the Pats game, and I see NE fans at the end of the game, still cheering in the wet & cold, as their team goes down in defeat.

In Clowntown, the only fans who'd be left would be the drunken boo-birds, trashing their own team worse than the opposition's fans.
