“We talked,” Cowher said. “It was a good talk. I was very flattered, but I expressed that it wasn’t the right time.”
Cowher left the Steelers following the 2006 season with a sterling 161-99 record that included the 2005 Super Bowl title and 10 playoff berths in 14 years. He’s in his second year as a studio analyst for CBS and said he has no plans to return to the sideline although he’s just 51, four years younger than the coach whom Snyder hired, Jim Zorn.
