Maybe Bill Cowher really is waiting for the Giants head coaching job to open up before he returns to the NFL. But if he is, you can be sure that Jerome Bettis doesn’t know it.
That’s what Cowher indicated in an interview with the Daily News yesterday, when he was asked about his former running back’s claim that he’s “holding out” until he can become the head coach of the Giants. Cowher didn’t specifically deny that, but he certainly hinted as much when he said Bettis wouldn’t have any idea if that was true because the two haven’t spoken in ages.
“I haven’t talked to Jerome Bettis in two years,” Cowher said. “I’ll leave it at that.”
