I wonder if this means Cowher will take the Buffalo head coaching position. Hope not...
According the Schefter, Cowher is unlikely to coach next season.

They've allegedly been in talks since mid-season, but since the job only officially opened up today how do they square this with the Rooney rule? When a coach like Shanny is involved its obviously a big charade, and you can expect something similar if a team has their sites set on Cowher.
I heard that Snyder and his staff had already interviewed a couple of minority assistant coach types, and gotten the League Front Office blessing that that would satisfy the rule.
I think it's a stupid rule to start with. All it accomplishes is to keep faux-race problems in the news, stirring the pot. If you REALLY want to stop racism, just stop talking about it.
i thought the rumor was that Cowher is going to Carolina after Fox plays his contract out next year. cowher gets to stay close to home and Fox gets a Free Agent pass to another job.
The media has known this is the plan for a long time. But if they just wait it out it's BORING so the will speculate that a HC who is seen as the premier catch will land anywhere there is a vacancy. Ditto Chucky. And Shanny. Those guys aren't coming back for just the money because prestige, positioning, and in Cowher's case location matter. None of them wants anything to do with BB or Tuna. They wait for the prime shot. In Shanny's case his impatience may be his undoing although his ego will be stroked temporarily by the contract and control Snyder will bestow born of desperation. It will remain to be seen if it works out, because nothing short of dominating that division and conference will suffice for long or Snyder will be itching to dabble in the personnel dept.
Chucky and Cowher could still be lured back in if the right situations present themselves. If the Giants decide to end the Coughlin era, if Lovie gets axed and possibly his GM has to relinquish control to save his own job, if the Seahawks decide Mora Jr. was a mistake, if the Cowboys spit the bit, if Fisher or DelRio get the axe. Teams like Buffalo and Cleveland and Tampa are way down the list, which is why what Holmgren did is such a headscratcher. Although I think a big snag in the plans for a couple of franchises is the looming lockout and the thought of paying off old money and potential double digit new money for HC/GM's in what may be a football-less season. Snyder obviously didn't care. Lerner probably figured out throwing fiscal caution to the wind was his only shot at landing a name value leader. Other ownerships that are itching to change may be reluctant to invest in scratching their itch heading into the uncapped year and the uncertainty that follows.
