bill will give the owners a courtesy visit to respectfully explain eye to eye why he is NOT yet ready to return to coaching.

bill is smart enough to keep all doors open and definitely not burn any bridges for the future.

people keep saying he cant or wont turn down a deal worth $10 mil/year, and full control of a team loaded with talent.

he already did last year (team wasnt revealed but im thinking the redskins).
Thanks for the info, hipcheese!

Besides - Kaye wears the pants in that family and I'm sure she'll have a huge say in what he does and where he goes down the road.

looks like chin's opting out of the jets job.

Quote:
Bill Cowher is out of the running for the New York Jets' vacant coaching job.

A high ranking Jets official told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that the Jets reached out to Bill Cowher on Tuesday about their vacant head coaching job. Cowher's agent called the team back and told them that Cowher had no interest in their coaching job.

"After reaching out to Coach Cowher's representatives, we were informed tonight that he is not a candidate for the position," Jets spokesman Bruce Speight told The Associated Press on Tuesday night.

Initially, ESPN.com's John Clayton reported Cowher told the Jets he was not interested because he wanted his own personnel director. The Jets official's response indicated the team was willing to let Cowher replace current general manager Mike Tannenbaum with his own candidate.

A Jets source also said Tannenbaum said he was willing to adjust his position to accommodate Cowher.

Cowher had not given the Jets the impression he must have total control of personnel, a person familiar with the search told AP. Still, Cowher took his name out of the running without a formal sit-down.

Cowher originally told friends the Jets' job interested him for several reasons. First, Cowher would love to coach in the New York market. Second, two of his daughters are either going to school or working in the New York-New Jersey area.

If Cowher doesn't take an open NFL head coaching job this offseason, he does plan to coach in 2010, sources told Clayton. In 2009, though, he is willing to return only if every situation is right for him. He wanted to have a two-year break from coaching to be with family and recharge.

Last weekend, Cowher met with Browns owner Randy Lerner, who asked him what it would take financially for him to be the Browns coach. Having a close relationship with the Rooney family in Pittsburgh and still wanting more time with family, Cowher didn't give Lerner a price, and said no.

Cowher, 51, was 161-99-1 in 15 seasons with Pittsburgh, including a Super Bowl win in 2006.

Cowher recently extended his contract with CBS for another season.


In addition to Cowher, the Jets are also lining up interviews with other candidates, including Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. The Giants have granted the Jets permission to speak with Spagnuolo regarding their opening, sources told ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

New York is also expected to interview a pair of in-house candidates: offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and offensive line coach Bill Callahan, who also served as assistant head coach under Eric Mangini, who was fired as head coach Monday. Mike Shanahan, fired by Denver on Tuesday night, could also be a potential candidate.

Spagnuolo has become a popular candidate given the Giants' success on defense the last two seasons under him. The 49-year-old defensive coordinator has been mentioned in connection with the vacant Detroit and Cleveland jobs, as well as the Jets.

He was hired by the Giants in January 2007 after working eight years under Jim Johnson with the Philadelphia Eagles' defense. Spagnuolo was considered for the Washington Redskins job after the Giants upset the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last season, but he chose to remain with New York.
[+]

everybody is just assuming that he'll go to SOME team next season, when there is a large possibility of him just staying out of coaching and remaining a cbs analyst (at least for next season).

sometimes a "cigar IS just a cigar".

sometimes when a man says he wants some time off to spend with his family he really means it.

i never doubted it. it was his stance from the get go and cowher has never shown to be a dishonest liar.

im amazed at all the steelerfans who were so sure he was chomping at the bit to jump back in the game for nothing more than money.

where have you guys been for the past 17 years?

im sure denver or the rams will call, perhaps al davis will be willing to give up all control (doubtful with hot candidate james lofton still out there) and all the "cowher to return" talks will resume.

hes said it all along. he wants a break, and if you watch the cbs pre-game show, he is actually the "star".

to see the likes of shannon, dan, and boomer take a back seat to this 2nd year TV novice is kinda funny...

I could see him wearing a Jets jacket on the sidelines as well.

The thing that amazes me though is how Adam Schefter is just saying that people will not listen and according to his sources(hard to belive him but when it comes to big news hes right a lot of times) that The chin has no desire to come back to coaching at all until 2010, that he will listen out of courtesy , but he will say no. I say he waits another year to see if Fox collapses the panthers or if his situation is right and then he takes over.

Fox is going nowhere...even if he went 0-16 next year (which he won't...not with that defense).

So much for that...

Updating an ongoing story, ESPN.com reports the New York Jets reached out to former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher about their vacant head coaching job Tuesday, Dec. 30.
