(NEW YORK) — With a number of NFL coaching jobs still on the table, could the NFL see the return of former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher? Cowher told Newsday on Tuesday that he would like to coach again, at some point.
“It would be a challenge,” Cowher said, who left the Steelers in 2006. “But I think that’s probably why I would get back into it, because of the challenge.”
There are still five current head coaching jobs available in the NFL, one of those is the Cleveland Browns, a team that Cowher played linebacker for before becoming an assistant under Marty Schottenheimer’s staff.
Cowher was a special teams coach and worked with the Browns secondary from 1985-1988 after retiring.
“I did it for 27 years,” he said. “You don’t just forget things overnight.”
Cowher led the Steelers to two Super Bowl appearances during his tenure as head coach (1992-2006) and was victorious in 2005.
During his time in Pittsburgh, Cowher was 149-90-1.
