Since the day Bill Cowher quit as head coach of the Steelers, fans in Cleveland have pined for him to return to the sidelines and coach the Browns. With the Browns now at 3-6, the voices of those fans are growing louder. Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has the latest story about Browns fans who want Cowher to come to town, profiling the creator of, a site devoted to convincing Browns owner Randy Lerner to hire The Chin. Of course, as we’ve noted before, it’s not as easy as just firing Romeo Crennel and hiring Cowher. For one thing, it’s highly unlikely that Cowher would take another job without full personnel authority, which means General Manager Phil Savage would have to be fired, too. For another, the Browns can’t just hire a new coach until they’ve interviewed a minority candidate. And for another, Cowher has said publicly that he is happy in retirement and not looking to coach again. But as long as the Browns are struggling and Cowher is available, a whole lot of fans will clamor for the former Browns player and assistant to become the head man in Cleveland.
