Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher looks closer to returning to the NFL.

Cowher and/or a representative of his has contacted prospective assistant coaches, according to a league source with knowledge of the queries.

The source didn’t know what team or teams Cowher could be involved with, but NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached out to the coach either directly or through his representation.

Cowher, who coached the Steelers for 15 seasons, currently works as a studio analyst for CBS Sports.
