Redskins are trying to make a Power Move for Bill Cowher

Bill Cowher is once again surrounded by rumors that he will be leaving the comfort of the broadcast booth to return to the NFL sidelines.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers coach, who led his team to a Super Bowl title before retiring, has been rumored as a candidate for the Washington Redskins coaching vacancy and other openings.

Though Cowher hasn’t spoken about whether he wants to return to coaching, the Redskins job would seem a decent fit. The franchise has a tendency to select established coaches rather than rolling the dice with hot young assistant coaches and Cowher would be an excellent successor to Mike Shanahan.

The job itself is also attractive, with two promising young quarterbacks in Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins, as well as an owner in Daniel Snyder who isn’t afraid to spend money to establish a contender.

The Washington Times pegged Bill Cowher as a potential candidate for the job, along with former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith and Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris.
