The Steelers, Bill Cowher and his agent might be among the first the Dolphins contact. If Pittsburgh grants the Dolphins permission to speak with its coach, a person close to Cowher said Wednesday he would be willing to listen. There are obstacles to Cowher joining the Dolphins. He reportedly wants a contract extension in Pittsburgh that would pay in excess of $7 million annually; the Steelers offered $6 million. And the Steelers would demand draft-choice compensation in return for releasing him from his contract. The Dolphins also would have to gauge Cowher's personal situation to see if he indeed is willing to take on a job long-term rather than for a two- to five-year spurt. But the obstacles are not insurmountable if Cowher is receptive. Huizenga has deep pockets and said Wednesday that he badly wants his team to win. ''I don't care what it takes, what it costs, or what's involved,'' he said. http://www.benmaller.com/nfl_rumors_notes Don't forget that 2 of his former coaches are there already- Dom Capers and Mike Mularkey.
