TBO.com: Cowher Report FalseDecember 27th, 2009
Joe’s friend Woody Cummings, Bucs beat writer for TBO.com and The Tampa Tribune, says a source close to the Glazers claims the Bucs owners did not contact Bill Cowher about coaching the team in 2010.
This morning, NFL.com insider Jason LaConfora reported that contact by Team Glazer indeed happened, although LaCanfora did not offer a timetable of when the Glazers reached out to Cowher.
“That’s not true,” a source with knowledge of the Glazer family’s intentions told the Tampa Tribune. “That’s just people speculating.”
According to a story by NFL.com reporter Jason La Canfora, Bucs officials reached out to Cowher to gauge his interest in possibly coaching the team in 2010. The story cited “a source with knowledge of the situation.”
Regardless of what’s correct. Why would the Glazers not have reached out to Cowher? The team was 1-12 a week ago. It never hurts to talk.
