    Would recommend the Cowher A Football Life episode if anyone has a chance to watch it. Episode focuses a lot on his family life (interviews with his three daughters and his current wife along with clips of old NFL Films interviews when his daughters were growing up) as well as the obligatory soundbites from Bettis, Ben, Porter and Hines.

    I tend to forget Cowher was a good enough football player to be most valuable player on his NC State team his senior year and hang as a special teams player with the Browns and the Eagles for 4 seasons before he said he took a 2/3 pay cut from his $125K salary with the Eagles to coach special teams for Marty Scottenheimer with the Browns.

    Made it clear he was burned out on both the stress of NFL coaching and the fishbowl existence of being the HC in Pittsburgh when he gave it up at age 49 - once he finally won a Lombardi he was ready to get out.

    Enjoys the anonymity of life in New York City and is happy to cash the checks from CBS while being a grandfather(!). He would not rule out ever coming back to coaching but after watching this I am more convinced than ever he does not want to return to that life even if some owner wanted to do a Gruden type hire of someone who has been out of coaching for a dozen years.
