In a recent story by Jason La Canfora via NFL.com, he cites that sources have said that Cowher told the Buffalo Bills front office that he had no interest in joining a coaching staff until the end of the year. He also has several choices of where he wants to go in front of him. The most obvious being Carolina, since that is where he is from. It has been rumored since he left Pittsburgh that he was just waiting for John Fox's time to end with the Panthers.
But in this story, La Canfora stated this the Texans are one of the franchises that would "excite" Cowher. The others being, of course, Carolina and also Chicago. Fox has one more year on his deal in Carolina and Jay Cutler is warming up Lovie Smith's seat faster than he is throwing interceptions so far this year. Carolina has played better after a slow start, but team owner Jerry Richardson would not be met with serious shock if he chose to let Fox go.
But the question is if Bill Cowher has a legitimate interest in coaching Houston. Many believe that he is just going to use us as leverage to get what he wants from Carolina. Same with Chicago. But, this is all just idle speculation, really. All three of the mentioned teams still have a current head coach that we have no idea if they will be there next year or not. If all three of these teams finish strong until the end of the year, it wouldn't surprise me if all of them get to stay.
I haven't been on the "Fire Kubiak!" bandwagon many around the city have. But after last Monday's debacle, if Bill Cowher wants to come here...I will pack Gary's bags for him.
