Report: Cowher inclined to wait another year to coach in 2011



At least Raheem Morris may not have to worry about Bill Cowher taking his job.

According to a report on,  the former Steelers Super Bowl-winning coach is not expected to return to the sidelines in 2010.

Citing unnamed sources close to the situation, Adam Schefter reported Cowher's best option is Buffalo and he doesn't want to coach there. Options in Tampa Bay and Carolina have not materialized, according to the report.

Morris went 3-13 in his first season as a head coach at any level. The Bucs won two of their final three games, including road wins at Seattle and New Orleans.

Morris said in his final regular season press conference that he has not met with the Glazer family that owns the Bucs. After coaches take a few days off, he will begin evaluating the 2009 season and determine if any changes need to be made to his coaching staff.

But the news that Cowher has decided not to coach in 2010 is a pretty good indication that the Glazers intend to stick with Morris and general manager Mark Dominik for at least another season.
