Steelers Expecting Cowher to Resign
Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Bill Cowher is scheduled to be with his family today in Raleigh, N.C., as he ponders his coaching future.
The Steelers seem to expect Cowher to resign with a season remaining on his contract. Contract talks between the team and Cowher broke off before the season and Cowher's family relocated to North Carolina. The Steelers followed their Super Bowl triumph with a trying season in which they went 8-8 and missed the playoffs.
If Cowher leaves the Steelers after 15 seasons as their coach, he likely would take a year off before considering a possible return to coaching. The Steelers would have two strong internal candidates in offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and offensive line coach Russ Grimm.
Cowher promised late in the season that his decision would come soon after the season, and the Steelers appear to be hoping for a verdict by next week.
