Default Re: Cowher's Future Unclear

Isn`t it all our dreams to retire by the age 50, if not sooner? I do not want him to ever retire, but that is selfish, if I could attend every game of my daughters and not every have to worry about cash, IM THERE! Just the fact that he is pulling his daughter out of Pittsburg to go to school in NC says something, because on the one NFL show he talk about never missing thier games. I think he will ride off into the sunset. If he leaves thats fine, as long as he doesn`t go to another team, if he bails on us for another team, i`ll be pissed!

I bet Cowher is soon to be gone.

The hours coaches put in during the season, on winning and losing teams, are insane. Having finally achieved the peak after all the agonizing near misses of the last 10 years (as Cowher now has), there has to be an assessment of whether this is all you want to do with the rest of your life.

I believe the main thing holding Cowher back is that he knows he has (for him) the best job in coaching and that once he gives that up any return to coaching will be a poor substitute for his current situation.

whats funny about this is that i posted a blog on here about a couple months ago saying i could see him retiring and everybody thought i was nuts. Look at it like this though. We arent the raiders if he does quit i think we could get alot of big names from outside the organization. Even maybe somebody in the college ranks

Since any Cowher retirement in the next several years will be voluntary rather than due to poor performance, I assume any replacement will be from within the organization.

However, there is something to be said for making a clean break with the past and hiring from outside the organization (e.g. - when the Steelers went with Cowher rather than with what (unfortunately) would have been a terrible choice if Joe Greene had been hired as HC in 1992).

My main concern is that after having had only 2 coaches since 1969 the Steelers are well past due for a clunker of a head coach selection. Hopefully the Steelers will repeat in 2006and Cowher will be compelled to return to seek a threepeat in 2007.

i'm sure i'm going to get called stupid for this suggestion but here me out. I think if cowher does retire kirk lafrentz would be a great replacement. He comes from the belichick family and hes a great young coach. I would just hate for us to go with one of our old fo's like hasslett or mularkey.

IMO, Whiz is going to be the man. Cowher and LeBeau are in the process of molding him into a HC.

I don`t know if we go after a big name, and especially NOT a college coach! How often has a former college coach won the superbowl? Only maybe Jimmy Johnson!

I agree with that. The fact of the matter is many college coaches fail at the nfl level. Spurrier and Erickson just to name two. However you have to remeber where lafrentz roots are they are from belichick. Let me ask you all a question who would you rather have coaching the steelers Nick Saban or whiz?
