Report: Cowher to meet with Bills again

From Mark Maske of The Washington Post:

Bill Cowher reportedly is scheduled to have what apparently would be a second meeting with the Buffalo Bills about their coaching job Tuesday.

The Web site EastAurora.org reported that the Bills' dismissal of all their coaches Monday, when the team informed interim coach Perry Fewell and his assistants that they were free to seek jobs elsewhere, might have come in reaction to Cowher insisting that he have complete control over hiring his staff.

According to the report, the Carolina Panthers also remain in the running for Cowher.

The Panthers reportedly won't fire their coach, John Fox, but also will not offer him an extension to his contract, which runs through next season. It's unclear if Fox would remain with the team under those circumstances.

There have been conflicting reports about whether Cowher, the former Pittsburgh Steelers coach who's now an NFL analyst for CBS on the network's studio show, is about to return to coaching. ESPN reported first that Cowher met with the Bills last week, then reported that he was unlikely to return to coaching for next season.
