The other day, I was pretty surprised to hear Bill Cowher's name come up in coaching rumors again.
I mean, we always hear Cowher's name anytime there is a vacancy, but usually, he has no interest.
However on Wednesday, ESPN broke the news of Cowher stating at a CBS function that he wants to coach again.
What was interesting from the story was the report based off the story done by Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which said that Cowher isn't interested in coaching for another four to five years.
The 55-year-old Cowher has not coached since the 2006 season after spending 15 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1992-2006).
A few years ago, the rumors of Bill Cowher being interested in taking over the New York Giants head coaching job came about, especially with the Giants struggles early in the 2010 season and Tom Coughlin missing the playoffs for two straight years.
Cowher's name came up on this web site several times last year during the Giants mid-season slide, but were put to bed when the Giants went on their Super Bowl run for a second time.
I am, in no way, trying to push a two-time Super Bowl winning coach like Coughlin out the door.
What this story is doing is wondering about the future, and if Cowher still wants to be the Giants head coach in that future.
