Alot of the Pittsburgh media types who claim some type of relationship to Cowher do not believe he is going to coach until 2010, but they are finding it peculiar that Cowher is speaking specifics with the Jets.  Many believe that if there is one team he would sign with, it would be the Jets.  I agree with most of them on that I in no way see Cowher signing on as the new Dallas head coach.  I have been wrong before, but even Cowher could see egos colliding soon in that scenario.


Report: Jets Hell-Bent On Landing Cowher
Source: Gang Green Ready To Do "Whatever Is Necessary" To Get Super Bowl-Winning Coach To N.Y.


Role Of Current GM Tannenbaum May Be Restructured
By JEFF CAPELLINI, WCBSTV.com Senior Sports Producer

 Dec 30, 2008 2:08 pm US/Eastern

Not two hours after a report surfaced saying Cowher was not going to interview for the Jets' vacant head coaching position because he wanted to bring along his own player personnel director, the team has apparently had somewhat of a change of heart regarding the job status of general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

That's not to say the Jets are going to fire the man they have deemed not responsible for the team's epic regular season collapse. It's safe to say Eric Mangini will remain the lone fall guy, but Tannenbaum's job description may soon change. A report on ESPN.com says a high-ranking Jets official has come forward to say the team is prepared to do "whatever is necessary" to get Cowher on board. Another source said Tannenbaum himself is ready to relinquish some power to get the Super Bowl-winning coach to New York.

Prior to this latest revelation, it was widely known that Jets CEO Woody Johnson had declared Tannenbaum's job safe despite the fact that Mangini was hired on Tannenbaum's watch.

Tannenbaum was also responsible for spending $140 million of Johnson's money during last offseason's whirlwind free agency assault. He also played a major role in orchestrating the trade that brought Brett Favre over from Green Bay in August.

Fans seem to think blame rests with the entire team, not just Mangini. A wcbstv.com viewers' poll revealed that 69 percent of the fans cast blame on the players as a whole. Favre came next with 21 percent, followed by Mangini with 10 percent.

On the other hand, 59 percent of the fans who took part in the poll said letting Mangini go was the right thing to do.

So, at least from the fans' perspective, a change was warranted, even though the vast majority of people don't see Mangini as the main reason the Jets went from 8-3 and on the fast track to the AFC East title to 9-7 and sitting home lamenting what could have been.

If the Jets are indeed prepared to restructure their front office to accommodate Cowher, any talk of other possible replacements for Mangini will remain on the back burner. According to the ESPN.com report, Cowher believes the Jets job is attractive for several personal reasons and will address the issue on CBS' wild-card pre-game show on Sunday.

If the Cowher talks fall apart – and nothing is even scheduled at this point -- the team will have to quickly segue to other candidates. The question is, who?

Not counting Cowher, the list of available coaches that would satisfy all that the Jets require is few and far between.

Cowher is a great coach, but how many of these guys are as successful the second time around?

Answer: none.

See:
Jimmy Johnson
Vince Lombardi
Bill Parcells
George Seifert
Mike Holmgren
Mike Ditka


Better off hiring a guy who is an up and coming coach.

Parcells wasn't successful? Every team he coached had a huge improvement after he got there, and his hands are all over this year's Dolphins turnaround.

Lombardi's one season in Washington ended a long streak of losing Redskins seasons. He got sick and died the next year.

Parcells built winners in NE and with the Jets.

Parcells and Holmgren won conference titles with their second teams. That's pretty successful.

I did not even remember that Siefert coached after SF.   I would say Dick Vermeil did pretty well the second time around but we are probably just referring to head coaches who won a championship with their first team.   In that case, Don Shula stands out.  Won with the Colts and then with the Dolphins.

What's the possibility that Cowher just likes having his ego stroked and his nuts fluffed and isn't really going anywhere ?

Oh, trust me - you could be exactly right. 

He could be pricing the market to gauge asking prices for the future.

The guy is all about the cash.  He was known to sit in actively on his contract negotiations in Pittsburgh, and he was also known for being shrewd when it came to advertisements.

With the take off from the Facts about Chuck Norris, this was on a Steelers message board:

 

Teams don't interview Bill Cowher; Bill Cowher interviews the teams.

I hope Cowher takes a Head Coaching job just so I don't have to listen to him bumble and stumble on CBS anymore. He ALMOST makes Shannon Sharpe listenable.

LMAO if this is true. From the New York Post.

There will be no Cowher Power for the Jets. Bill Cowher informed the team last night he is not interested in their head-coaching job, and it could be because he doesn't want to coach Brett Favre. The former Steeler coach was the clear-cut favorite to replace Eric Mangini among Jets fans, and the team's ownership. Now, Woody Johnson must move on to Plan B. Talks between the Jets and Cowher never advanced past the preliminary stage. Sources close to Cowher said he did not want to have Favre as his quarterback, and that he also wanted to bring in people he was familiar with to handle personnel. A source familiar with Cowher's thinking said before last night's decision came down that the former Steeler boss would have to receive assurances from the Jets that the 39-year-old Favre no longer was in the picture before agreeing to take control.
