NEW YORK (AP) - Bill Cowher doesn't plan to coach in the NFL next year, and will stay with CBS Sports as a studio analyst.


Cowher was recently wooed by the New York Jets, but said during "The NFL Today" on Sunday that he's taking it "year to year."

"It's a privilege and an honor to be a head coach in the National Football League," Cowher said. "And I have been flattered about the attention, but the timing right now is not right. I don't plan on coaching next year."

The Super-Bowl winning coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006, Cowher took himself out of the running as a candidate for the Jets job on Dec. 30. He also was a candidate for the vacant Cleveland job, but asked to be taken off the list.

CBS Sports will broadcast the 2010 Super Bowl in Miami.

can't say that i'm surprised but 10 million is a lot of dough. i think i read somewhere that he makes about 2 million as an analyst.

The Browns seemed to be offering the GM and coaching job, which makes me think that if he ever comes back he could just do what Parcells did in Miami and just be a GM.

Yeah, but he's already sitting on a substantial amount of cash. :greenbounce2:

2 million for what 20 weeks? vs the riggers of being an NFL coach again. Easy choice.
