Default Bettis Predicts Cowher Landing Spot

Cicumstantial evidence may back this theory - Coughlin appears to be very shaky ground in NY and the media there are absolutely relentless once they have a target.

I know Cowher would often be abrupt with the relatively passive Pittsburgh media, I would love to see some Cowher press conferences in the Big Apple (only non-Americans probbaly call it that, right?) - especially if he had a rough start.

Quote:
Last year, former Steelers running back turned NBC commentator Jerome Bettis created a stir when he said his old coach, Bill Cowher, would leave the Steelers at the end of the 2006 season. Cowher said he was "very disappointed" by what Bettis said.

Bettis's report turned out to be true.

So Bettis has a little more credibility than most other players-turned-broadcasters when it comes to offering such predictions. And in an appearance on NFL Network's Total Access, Bettis offered another prediction: Cowher will coach the Giants in 2008.

"I really think he'll be coaching next year, and I think he'll be coaching in New York," Bettis said. "That's my take on it and just thinking about the type of team he fits in good with, the Giants are definitely one."

There's a widespread perception that Giants coach Tom Coughlin is heading into his last season with the team and that the Giants' front office wants a coach with proven credentials to replace him. Cowher would be the most obvious choice.

POSTSCRIPT: One possible complicating factor in all this is the relationship between the Rooney family, which owns the Steelers, and the Mara family, which owns the Giants. The families have been friends for almost as long as the NFL has existed, and Tim Rooney?s daughter Kathleen (Dan?s niece) is married to Wellington Mara?s son Chris (John?s brother). The Maras likely wouldn't touch Cowher without approval from the Rooneys.

I don't think it will happen at all, he would coach somewhere below the mason dixon line. his family just moved to NC. I don't think Jerome is right on this one.

He was quoted by Bonnie Bernstein the one day I was watching NFL Live that he is not interested in any job. No team has talked to him or his agent. Yet, that may have changed.

I agree about Fox and Carolina.

I'm also still not discounting Cleveland. I think Crennel is on his way out too and Cowher has history there.

Cowher and Cleveland don't mix. He wants to stay close to his family. Even if he does come out, he will coach Carolina. That's the closest team to home.
