I do not want a tv personality with an NFL past waiting for his "perfect" moment. If the dude was serious about it, he'd be doing it. Seems he'd just be cashing a paycheck by accepting a Goldilocks gig, where everything is "juuuuust right".
We need a hungry head coach, IMO.
Don't get me wrong, I have always liked Cowher. However, that does not blind me to the reality that his belly is full at this point in life. I say this by judging his actions (and inaction) on the subject of head coaching in the NFL.
