Default Cowher could end up in Texas, after all

As we reported on Sunday, former Steelers coach Bill Cowher isn’t a candidate to coach the Dallas Cowboys. But there are two teams in Texas, and the other team in Texas could be looking for a new coach come January.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reiterated on Tuesday that the Lone Star State has become the most likely destination for Cowher.
“I told you awhile back that Texas is his most likely landing spot — Houston, Texas,” Bouchette writes. “And last night’s game made him even more inviting for those Texans.”
Some may think that coach Gary Kubiak will survive despite the team’s disappointing 5-8 record, since he received a contract extension last year. But so did Brad Childress in Minnesota.
A move to Cowher also could mean the end of G.M. Rick Smith’s run. Five years ago, it was believed that owner Bob McNair opted not to fire coach Dom Capers and G.M. Charley Casserly simultaneously, since doing so would have underscored that both hires were mistakes. As a result, Capers was fired and Casserly “resigned” after the next draft.
Don’t be shocked if a similar approach is applied in 2011, with Smith sticking around through April before stepping aside.

Personally, I think he should have stayed in Pittsburgh. This guy they have now always looks like a deer caught in the headlights.

The Jags are doing great. You talk about Cinderella they keep finding that golden slipper. You look at the college ranks when it comes to schools and where to coach at. I'm sure that the NFL has a lot of prestige when it comes to where you coach

Tomlin is rolling in Pittsburgh. The steelers are about the strongest team still AFTER a head coaching job. I think he has done an awesome job filling in for Cowher. IMO.

The only thing that hasn't changed in Pittsburgh is it's talent. Their D has stayed strong and Big Ben finds ways to win, I hate the guy but i got to hand it to him.

Cowher will first wait and see if there is even going to be football in 2011, after that there will be about 6-7 teams looking for a new HC.

Dallas next coach John Gruden. He will fit in well with the cheerleaders.

Jon Gruden and Jerry Jones does not sound like it will go good together.

I am a diehard Steelers fan and Will Diffinitly root for Houston if Cowher goes there. But I have to agree, Tomlin has done an awesome job with the team. He is very well liked it Pittsburgh too.

Steeler's fan here to, going to the Steeler's Jets game on Sunday. As long as Cowher doesn't show up with any AFC North team I will be happy.

The Steeler's management aren't like most of the other teams in the NFL. They gave Chuck Noll time to develop a team, the same thing for Cowher. Any team that hires him I hope will allow him time and not expect him to turn around a crappy team in one year.

Talk about a high pressure job, an NFL coach has to be towards the top of the list.

GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But see thats the thing, when there are coaches out there like Cowher, Gruden, Shanahan and others that have winning records and a good resumes, Owners want their team turned around fast and in a hurry or else they will get rid of you!

^^^Thats why these coaches got paid the big bucks, step right in and get those 53 guys rolling. Turning a 0-16 team to a 8-8 team in one year.

not sure where the idea that Tomlin is over his head or doing poorly comes from. since he's been with the steelers and assuming the steelers win the AFC North this year (which they should), he would have won the NFC North 3 out of 4 years and brought another super bowl to pittsburgh. not too shaby.

his teams are prepared, motivated and have good game plans. that's all a head coach can do. he gets the best out of them and they respect and look up to him.

X1 BILLION THERE!

They stloe 3 superbowls - all 3 victories by 3 pts.

The NFL should have stripped those championships. You cannot tell me he was not cheating during those games and that they would have won without the taping.

I despise that organization.
