New York Post: Talks between the Jets and Cowher never advanced
past the preliminary stage. The Jets hoped to interview him for
the job sometime later this week, but late last night the team
released a statement that Cowher had rebuffed their overtures.
"After reaching out to Coach Cowher's representatives, we were
informed tonight that he is not a candidate for the position," Jet
spokesman Bruce Speight said in an e-mail. While the Jets hoped
to woo Cowher with a boatload of money, the marriage appeared to
be unlikely from the outset. Sources close to Cowher said he did
not want to have Favre as his quarterback, and that he also wanted
to bring in people he was familiar with to handle personnel. A
source familiar with Cowher's thinking said before last night's
decision came down that the former Steeler boss would have to
receive assurances from the Jets that the 39-year-old Favre no
longer was in the picture before agreeing to take control.
"There's no way he's taking Brett Favre as his quarterback," said
one person close to Cowher.
