NFL Head Coach Bill Cowher says he has no interest in returning the league to coach the New York Jets. Cowher also states he has very little interest in returning to the NFL to coach again at all.

Cowher’s name seems to resurface during every NFL offseason in relation to head coaching vacancies around the league. It is with good reason as well as Cowher is one of the most successful coaches in NFL history.

Still, it seems the former Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach is content with his career and insists he isn’t interested any in opening on any team. Speaking to sports network ESPN, Cowher very bluntly says he will not be taking a coaching position for the upcoming 2021 season.

“I have no interest in coaching,” he says in a phone interview with ESPN.

Current New York Jets Head Coach Adam Gase is very much on the hot seat heading into the 2020 NFL offseason. The Jets are 0-13 on the season and could finish the 2020 season without a single winning game.

Over the weekend, the Jets were manhandled by the Seattle Seahawks to the tune of a 40-3 loss. Despite Gase’s reputation as a great offensive mind, the Jets offense is going nowhere fast. The team is likely to be in the market for a new head coach after the season.

Bill Cowher Says He Has no Interest in NFL Return

The new head coach isn’t likely to be Bill Cowher, who last coached in the league in 2006.

“I have too much respect for the coaching profession to talk about a job that isn’t open,” he says. “From that perspective, any job that is open, I have no interest in coaching.”

The 63-year-old Cowher coached the Steelers for 15 years winning a super bowl in 2006 before announcing his retirement. He was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame earlier this year. He currently serves as an NFL analyst on “The NFL Today.”
