    Source: Cowher unlikely to land with Dolphins
    More Columns >
    Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher is unlikely to become the next coach of the Miami Dolphins, according to a source close to Cowher. Looking at potential coaching openings around the league, the Dolphins represented the lone opportunity that made sense for Cowher, according to the source, but that sense has diminished.

    The source states that the Dolphins are strongly considering parting with head coach Tony Sparano, but are likely to retain general manager Jeff Ireland. Ireland has built a strong rapport with Dolphins owner Steve Ross and has close ties to former Kansas City Chiefs president Carl Peterson, a longtime friend and confidant of Ross.

    Cowher, along with commanding a salary in the $7 million to $8 million range, would want his own personnel staff, meaning sweeping changes to the football operations side of the organization -- in essence, clearing out those brought in previously by Bill Parcells.

    Those close to Cowher do not expect him to move forward with the Dolphins unless the parameters of the job change substantially.

    Cowher amassed a 149-90-1 regular-season record in 15 years with the Steelers from 1992 to 2006. He led the team to six conference championship games and two Super Bowls, including a 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL. Cowher currently is an analyst for CBS Sports.
