Another spin of the coaching carousel will come and go without Bill Cowher returning to the NFL. Jerome Bettis has an idea where “The Chin” would like to jump back on.
“[The Giants are] the team that he really coveted,” Bettis said on Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Radio with Chris Russo Thursday. “This is where
he always wanted to be. The Mara family, he’s been very close to them. . . . He’s known them very well and was on the inside track — before the
Giants won the Super Bowl — for that job. And I think he’s holding out
for that opportunity if it presents itself.”
Bettis probably annoyed a few folks with that quote: The Giants, Cowher, Coughlin, and NBC for not sharing that scoop back in 2008. (Oh, and the Jets for knocking them off the back page Friday.)
