Recommended Posts

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher signed a two-year contract extension Monday -- the second time since 2001 he has agreed to a new deal after his team missed the playoffs the preceding season.

The extension, which carries through the 2007 season, is expected to keep Cowher's salary competitive with those of the game's highest-paid head coaches. Cowher's current deal pays him $3 million per season, and team president Art Rooney II said the coach was given a...

dont know what it is, but cowher just rubs me the wrong way

You and me both. My supervisor at work is from Pittsburgh, she loves the Steelers. I always get into discussions with her about Cowher and how the Steelers will never win a championship with him as head coach. He's one of those more suited to be a coordinator, I think.

Only in Pittsburgh......there have only been two coaches since the 50's

Cowher is a good coach though, i hate when teams fire the coach because of the players lack of ability.

Steeler games are always sold out.

the 2006 allstar baseball game will be at PNC Park.

The Penguins will be getting a new arena most likely after the casinos go in Downtown.

really sounds like a dying market to me...

I don't understand this one. Coach's get rewarded for getting the team to prosper and play to their ability. Cowher has not done this at all in Pittsburgh and still he gets rewarded. The Steelers need to shake things up and I would have thought that they would have started with Cowher. Don't expect him to finish out his contract.

He's a good man and a great coach. He sometimes is just a little to loyal.. ie Stewart. But it's nice to see some loyalty in the game still.

There's a difference between loyalty and stupidity. If Cowher can't get the team to produce then he must go. You can't have it hurting the team for the simple sake of being loyal.
