I can't explain how it happened, but my best friend is a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. We met up yesterday and I was lamenting the current Brownies coaching search, from Bill O'Brien, "losing" Marrone, and the little 7 hour love afair with Chip Kelly. Whether it is true or not, it appears in the media that we are getting hammered in this thing.
Then my friend said, I don't know why they haven't tried to hire Bill Cower....(**silence**)....yeah, I don't know they they haven't tried to hire Bill F'ing Cower. My friend went on to say besides him being a Super Bowl winning coach and all that, it would absolutely stick it to Pittsburgh and re-ignite the rivalry that has been largely dead since we rejoined the league, sans an amazing Kelly Holcomb Tommy (only XFL MVP in history) Maddox playoff game.
His name has surfaced for so many years for head coaching gigs, and now a quarter of the league is searching for a coach and to my knowledge, I haven't heard his name once. I know his wife's passing, kids age, and want to stay in North Carolina for those were all reasons keeping him off the sidelines.
I just think that Haslam is trying to run an organization like the Steelers (came from a minority ownership), he has already promised his coach quite a bit of power (attractive to a coach like Cower), and Cower is a former Brownie who at one point was at least favorable to a future return to the team in some capacity.
Lay it on me...yes, no?
