There's a huge diference in Cowher's overall record with and without Dick LeBeau. With LeBeau, his record as a head coach is 87-41 Without, he is 62-49. Not terrible but nothing special. And since Cowher left, Mike Tomlin's record is 43-21 with LeBeau as the Def coordinator. What does it mean? Cowher might just be a tad bit overated. I think LeBeau is the real architect of the Steelers machine. Ohh and LeBeau also was the def coordinator or the def backs coach for the Bengals in the 80's who went to two super bowls during that time. The Bengals have not even sniffed a super bowl since then.
