Cowher addresses coaching rumors, sort of

Bill Cowher is doing his best to let it be known that he’s not interested in any man’s job.

Speculation has been for weeks that the New York Giants are one franchise that Cowher, a CBS analyst, would like to take over. Certainly it looks like the chance for change is increasing, particularly in light of the beat down the Giants took Sunday against the Green Bay Packers ar Lambeau Field with a playoff berth on the line.

According to the New York Daily News, some believe the former Pittsburgh Steelers coach has been angling behind the scenes to become the coach-in-waiting for the Giants. Cowher sort of addressed the topic on Sunday in the pregame show.

“For anyone to insinuate that I have a wish list of coaches to be fired at this time of the year, I have too much respect for the profession," Cowher said. "I know how hard it is. I don't wish for anybody to be fired. And for someone to insinuate that I'm doing that right now is disrespectful to them, and I'm insulted by it. I would not do that to the profession.

"I'm not naive to say there won't be change at the end of the year. But I will address that at the end of the year."

So, Cowher didn’t say he wanted back into the business and he didn’t say he was not interested in a return. He sounded an awful lot like a politician, didn't he? Stay tuned to see how this plays out.
