Source: Cowher not interested in Bills
By John Clayton
The Buffalo Bills reached out to former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher, but he has informed them that he's not interested in interviewing for the job at this time, a source said Monday.
Bills owner Ralph Wilson has been aggressive in the past week trying to find a big-name replacement for fired coach Dick Jauron. He has arranged for a meeting this week with former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan. Cowher was another logical choice.
Cowher has been selective over the past couple of years in deciding the type of team he wants to coach. According to a source, Cowher doesn't want to interview for a job he's not going to accept despite the fact the Bills might be willing to pay top dollar for the right coach.
According to the source, Cowher told the Bills he wants to wait until the season ends before he starts interviewing for a job. Cowher is going to continue his broadcasting career and then see what's available after the season.
