Default The Official Bill Cowher's Successor Thread

What if I want to speculate what Cowher is going to do after retiring? Is that worthy of its own thread?

COPIED FROM THE BILL COWHER RETIREMENT THREAD...

that is part of what is driving my question. Lovie Smith being black would make him desirable for the Rooney's. However, Ron Rivera (the DB) has done a great job with thier defense. It would be nice to have another defensive coach as a head coach.

I'm afraid Mr Rooney has no choice - he will have to hire a minority - so here are the cadidates: Art Shell and Dennis Green ....just kidding - I know - I'm so freakin hilarious - I don't know if the Rooneys will get Lovie away from the Bears - Rivera's a good choice - one name that never comes up -(here comes my bias) I know him because I played high school football with his son -- Jimmy Raye - the guy is a genius - maybe one of the best coordinators ever - he has been interviewed several times but never offered a head coaching position - also Norm Chow - another great coach - I don't mean to start another thread on racism, but would Chow and Rivera count? Oriental and Hispanic - are they considered minorities under the hiring rules?

now i have to copy my thread of the hypothetical scenario of parcels, marty, and dungy being available, which was merged with the retirement thread, and transfer it to the successor thread.

anyways I want to know if the replacement has to have these qualifications:

1. minority
2. young
3. never been a HC in the NFL
4. believes in the traditional, smashmouth, power run offense
5. is dedicated to our defensive personel and 3-4 image

(i dont think ANYONE meets that criteria)

or are the rooneys ready to overhaul the whole image of steelers footbal as we have known it. a philosophy that has proven to be very successful.

thats a very valid point. but 6 afcc games in the past 15 years is nothing to shake a stick at. no other team has had as good an opportunity to be in the big one.

does that mean mike martz and a finesse style offense might be an option? is rex ryan or his brother a darkhorse? does hiring somebody who looks like a drunken, homeless, longhaired, pirate help satisfy the "rooney rule" on minorities?

ROTFL... no.. that satisfies the Raider rule on picking up hoodlums!

Your right about the AFC games... I think it point to the fact that we need a head coach that can keep the tradition alive, but think outside the box more. Come in and surprise teams that are expecting the same packages from us every week.

what we dont know is if cowher was holding ken w's coaching back or if cowher was keeping him in check and preventing more losses. does whiz get credit for the KC game plan? or does he get credit for the baltimore game plans? was opening it up last season in the playoffs cowhers or whiz's idea? we dont know. (im willing to bet the rooneys do though)
