Default Coach Chin's name comes up again

COACH CHIN SHOWING SOME LEG TO JERRY? (this would be a travisty)
profootballtalk.com
another article
http://www.washingtontimes.com/weblo...called-cowher/

Posted by Mike Florio on October 28, 2008, 11:51 a.m. EDT
As names like Jim Haslett begin to percolate to the top of the list of names of potential head coaching candidates for the coming hiring cycle, former Steelers coach Bill Cowher could be making an effort to ensure that his name remains in circulation for any potential vacancies.

Why else would Cowher have told David Elfin of the Washington Times that Cowher was contacted by the Redskins after former coach Joe Gibbs retired in January? (At the press conference announcing Gibbs’ retirement, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder denied speaking Cowher. But it’s possible that the communications came thereafter.)

“We talked,” Cowher told Elfin. “It was a good talk. I was very flattered, but I expressed that it wasn’t the right time.”

Elfin also reports that Cowher, 51, reiterated he has no plans to return to coaching. Of course, a truck full of money might make it the “right time” to reconsider.

And the man to watch in this regard is Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

If the Cowboys fail to make the playoffs, or if they go one-and-out yet again, look for Jones to have the same kind of epiphany that prompted him to hand the keys to Bill Parcells nearly six years ago.

Jones once thought enough of Cowher to hire his offensive coordinator, Chan Gailey, to be the Cowboys’ head coach. Haslett, another member of the official Cowher coaching Chia Pet, undoubtedly got Jones’ attention nine days ago when the overmatched Rams overpowered the Cowboys.

With Cowher now available, and with Jones getting ready to christen a billion-dollar stadium, Jones’ impulsive nature could prompt him to plunk down whatever it takes to get Cowher to give it another go.

For now, it’s unknown what Jones will eventually do. From Cowher’s perspective, however, it doesn’t hurt to remind Jones and anyone else who might be looking for a new coach remembers that Cowher is still around.

I don't know if Cowher could or would want to coach in dallas with Jones butting in and and playing coach/owner. I just don't see Cowher putting up with it.

Cowher should coach the Vikings after they fire their coach at years end or the Chargers after Norv gets the boot this season.

Question is does Cowher want to risk his legacy by going to a team for 3-5 years only to be fired because the players didn't return the favor of a Super Bowl trophy and the owners weren't named Rooney!?

i hate to say this cause i live in the middle of cowboy country (and by that i mean the ENTIRE region east of san diego, west of new orleans, and south of denver/kansas city) but i dont think there would be any more attractive job for cowher out there.

assuming location isnt a factor in him coming back, he would be an absolute king in dallas. i think he would instantly be more popular than any other coach besides landry. he would bring j. jones credibility.

jones would respect him more than he did parcels cause cowher would instantly show him more respect.

he would have all the ingridients to build a winner, plus the owner would probably be willing to give him a few million more than the next highest paid coach.

i would hate to see it. that would be just as strange as landry coaching the steelers or noll with the cowboys.

Jason Garrett is the next coach of the cowboys. This article is nonsense.

Wait a few months. Crenell is the most expendable coach in the NFL right now, and Cowher is what makes him expendable.

You guys all think I'm crazy, but Cowher's going to Cleveland. I've been thinking about it more lately. The FO will give him whatever he wants, they'll pay him 10-12 mil a year, and he can deliver a big FU to the Steelers if he can win there. It's the ultimate challenge. Take a seriously flawed team, a cursed team, and make them winners, renew the rivalry, and prove to the Rooney's that he really WAS worth all that money.

Cleveland will spend whatever he wants on whatever players he wants, too....he has a chance to prove that he knows more than the Rooney's as well.
