Schefter: Cowher Wants To Return To NFL In 2010

Former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher has been rumored to return to the NFL for years now, and talk has heated up in recent months. On Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets the most substantial rumor yet:

Word around the league is that Bill Cowher is poised to return to the sidelines in 2010. Potential landing spots: Tampa Bay and Carolina.

Yes, yes...I used the phrase "substantial rumor" there, but Schefter is one of the most well-connected journalists on the NFL scene, and he isn't wrong often. Tampa Bay and Carolina -- who face tenuous coaching situations -- seem like feasible destinations. To boot, they're both in the NFC, where Cowher wouldn't have to face the Steelers as often, if at all. Cowher has long said that if he were to return, he would not want to have to coach against his former team.

Stay tuned for updates.
