Default Cowher Interview on WTAE

Cowher Power Talks Steelers, Stepping Down, Relaxation

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For 15 years, former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher stalked the sidelines, but with three months before his 50th birthday, Cowher has settled down in Raleigh with his family, at least for now.

WTAE Channel 4 Action News anchor Sally Wiggin caught up with Cowher and his wife, Kaye, for an exclusive interview.

It has been a little over six weeks since Cowher publicly said goodbye to the job that had defined him, but already, life has slowed for him a bit.

"Happy to have him down and have some time with him again," said Cowher's wife, Kaye. "He has become my walking partner. Yeah we walk. He doesn't like to. He would rather run, but I make him walk."

"If she stops early, I run the last lap," said Bill.

And he admits he is even sleeping better, too.

Wiggin: "Have there been moments of anxiety when you wake up in the morning, and go, 'Ohhhh?'"

Cowher: "I don't think so. I mean, every now and then, I get a little antsy walking around the house and hear my wife say, 'You are bored, aren't you?'"

Cowher is set to take on his new role, though. He will be the only coach on a CBS team that includes former Pittsburgher Dan Marino.

"This is really a great opportunity for me, to see if this is something I can be good at," said Cowher. "And it is in New York, so I will leave on a Saturday and come back on a Sunday night."

The schedule leaves time for Cowher to see his daughter Lindsay's Friday night high school games, along with time to see his other daughters, Meagan and Lauren at Princeton.

After Cowher's first appearance since stepping down as the Steelers' coach, Kaye offered him a piece of advice.

"The biggest thing is, I have got to get rid of my Pittsburgh accent," said Cowher.

"I told him that," said Kaye.

"There is a little that comes out and she will always point it out," said Cowher.

But the deep fondness he and his family have for Pittsburgh is lasting.

"It is a very, very special place, and will always be for us," said Cowher.

"To the girls, Pittsburgh is their home," said Kaye. "They really like the beach. They like Raleigh, but for the rest of their lives, they will always say, 'I am from Pittsburgh.'"

But for Cowher, being in Pittsburgh for those six months of commuting was hard.

"To be there and talk with her at times, to help at times, I missed that and just being back here for a short period of time, has reaffirmed this decision," said Cowher.

And Lindsay and Kaye said they couldn't be happier.

Now, to quote a recent article," he is immersed in a cocoon of femininity."

Wiggin: "Are there times right now, that you just feel awash in hormones?"

Cowher: "There are always overlaps somewhere in there. I just bounce around from one girl to another, acknowledge I say the wrong thing at the wrong time. But the newest addition won't mind."

The newest addition, meaning their new puppy, Bella.

"She stole his heart," said Kaye.

"We still have a male cat in the house, but with Bella, it was love at first sight," said Cowher.

As much as the Cowhers are enjoying their time together now, they said they are equally grateful for their 15 Pittsburgh years, and they thank the Rooneys for that.

I'm happy for BC, and I welcome Coach Tomlin, but I still wish BC was our HC....it wasn't his time to leave!

A few months ago, I was out shopping and a woman overheard me and asked if I was from western PA. It was one of those rare days when I wasn't wearing anything Steelers too. :)

I'll tell you why he needs to ditch the accent. Because if he doesn't he has no chance of making it on national tv. Kaye realizes this and I'm sure she would rather have him working one day a week instead of 7. They get a paid trip to NY every weekend. Princeton is a short drive from the city so they'll get to visit the girls.

You may not want to hear it or believe it, but many things in a Pgh. accent sound ignorant. I went through years of my wife telling me the same things Bill is hearing now. Does Dan marinio have an accent?

I wish Bill well in his TV gig. I hope he makes it because I'd rather see him there than coaching an opposing team. That being said I question whether he has the personality to succeed at the job. Hopefully CBS has already started him in some sort of training.
