Found this on the web...


Earlier this week, J.J. Cooper mentioned how former Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Bill Cowher had no desire to return to the sidelines of an NFL team anytime soon. That, of course, hasn't stopped rumors from circulating, especially since he may have purchased a home in Strongsville, Ohio. From Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk:
Apparently, plenty of folks in Cleveland have heard that former Steelers coach Bill Cowher has bought a home in Strongsville, Ohio.
It's creating a buzz on the Internet, and for good reason. Cowher's purchase of a North Carolina home in early 2006 fueled rumors that he would be leaving the Steelers

After the 2006 season, he did.

If you're not familiar with Strongsville, Ohio -- and I'm guessing you're not -- it is located roughly 20 miles south of downtown Cleveland. Estimated driving time: 24 minutes. Cleveland, by the way, is home to the Cleveland Browns, an NFL franchise that has qualified for the post-season once since 1999, and is currently off to a disappointing start at 0-3. Which means a coaching change could be in the franchise's not-to-distant future. Naturally, once you put two and two together ... you get a rumor.


It probably means nothing -- I'm sure it means nothing -- but it's somewhat interesting that Cowher, a guy who could purchase a home anywhere he wanted, has chosen Strongsville, Ohio. Assuming he really did purchase a home in Strongsville, Ohio. Rumors are fun.


So what do we think about this?  Shocked

I think the same thing I thought since Cowher quit the Steelers.  Herm will be fired in KC, and that will be where he makes his comeback.

Next question: Would Cowher come back to coaching?

Here's what he said recently (re: coaching in KC):

"If I said I didn't miss it, I'd be lying. I don't miss living in a fishbowl, but I still love football, and at some point maybe I'll want to get back into it. But as I've said over and over, I have no plans to do that right now. I've never had an occasion to rethink my decision. I'm really enjoying my life. My daughter is a senior in high school, and I really like being a part of her life again."

His daughter, though, will graduate in June.

"You can never say never," he said.

Yeah, I always thought he might like to go to KC.  And the way the Chiefs are playing, Herm could very well get his walking papers...

If the Ohio house purchase rumor is true, then there is no question he is going to the Browns.  Why the hell else would he buy a house in Ohio?

I'd hate to see Cowher go to team in the division.  But of course, as long as the Steelers are in the playoffs, do we really have anything to worry about if we played a Cowher coached team?  You know the biggest gripe against Cowher was the failed playoff runs.  Maybe he learned his lesson in 05, though.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of success he would have:  a Vermeil in KC, Siefert in Carolina, Gibbs second stint in Washington, Mariucci in Detroit, Johnson in Miami ... Or successful second stints like Marv in Buffalo, Marty in KC.

Stats favor the prioir.

Parcells in NE (or Dallas *snicker*) springs to mind.

With the draft picks that they've accumulated, and the ones the Browns have pissed away, KC may be the better option.  They just have to find a QB.

If you search the Cuyahoga County Auditors website for real estate records, nothing shows up under the last name of Cowher.
