Cowher open to coaching return

CBSSports.com wire reports

NEW YORK -- Bill Cowher has added a bit of intrigue to the NFL coaching carousel, telling Newsday he probably will return to the sideline at some point.

The 55-year-old Cowher coached the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1992-2006, winning a Super Bowl after the 2005 season. He is now a TV analyst for CBS.

He tells the newspaper on Tuesday the challenge of returning to coaching after a long layoff is motivation for him to come back. But he says hasn't been contacted by any of the five NFL teams hunting for a new head coach, and he isn't tempted by any of those opportunities either.

Cowher's career coaching record is 149-90-1. The Steelers went 8-8 in his final season.
