Former NFL HC Bill Cowher said he is not interested in leaving his broadcasting position with CBS to pursue an NFL head coaching job, including with the Giants.

No, it’s not even about a team, it’s about lifestyle,” Cowher said, via Justin Terranova of the New York Post. “Coaching is always going to be a great challenge and every building dynamic is different. I had the best job in football and I was able to step away and transition from it to a next phase of life, which, quite frankly, I am very, very comfortable with. I am in a very good place.

Cowher explained that his life is well balanced and he still gets to cover the game.

“I have a platform to talk about the game I love and at the same time I have more balance in my life than I’ve ever had before,” Cowher said. “There’s always going to be a tough time of year when coaching changes take place at the end of the season. It’s a tough profession, not a very stable one. When one person leaves it opens opportunities for some other young coaches and there are some other young coaches out there. We’ve seen it can turn around quickly with the right kind of leadership and a few key players.”


Redskins LB Junior Galette, who previously missed two seasons due to an Achilles’ injury, said he has not “lost a step” and it still believes he’s a “top-tier” pass rusher.

I feel I haven’t lost a step,” said Galette, via John Keim of ESPN. “I’m a top-tier pass-rusher in this league. I have every move you can think of. I have it. I want to play. Give me the amount of time and I’ll get you double-digit sacks and I’ll be the player that I was. I haven’t lost anything.”
