The P Posted January 23, 2010 Share Posted January 23, 2010 Maybe Bill Cowher really is waiting for the Giants head coaching job to open up before he returns to the NFL. But if he is, you can be sure that Jerome Bettis doesn’t know it. That’s what Cowher indicated in an interview with the Daily News yesterday, when he was asked about his former running back’s claim that he’s “holding out” until he can become the head coach of the Giants. Cowher didn’t specifically deny that, but he certainly hinted as much when he said Bettis wouldn’t have any idea if that was true because the two haven’t spoken in ages. “I haven’t talked to Jerome Bettis in two years,” Cowher said. “I’ll leave it at that.” Asked if if he knew of any reason Bettis might have for saying something like that, Cowher stuck by his one and only statement, saying “I think that answers your question.” Maybe so, but Bettis, the former Steelers running back, sure did sound convinced last week when he said on SiriusXM radio that the 52-year-old Cowher has “got his eyes” on the Giants. “That’s the team that he really coveted,” Bettis said. “This is where he always wanted to be. The Mara family, he’s been very close to them. … He’s known them very well and was on the inside track — before the Giants won the Super Bowl — for that job. And I think he’s holding out for that opportunity if it presents itself.” http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/giants/2010/01/-maybe-bill-cowher-really.html to be fair to jerome though, cowher also "shot down" his statement that bill would retire... and then he retired.
