10:01 AM ET 11.06 | From what I have heard, the Bears are not on the top of Bill Cowher's list of places he wants to coach. But they are on his list of places he is interested in, should there be an opening. There probably are a couple of places he'd rather be, and if those jobs open up Cowher would likely not be available to the Bears.

Cowher is going to be the coach of the Carolina Panthers. We all have known that for years now. He lives in Carolina and his kids go to school there.

Carolina won't pay him because they are cheap, so he won't be there... Not to mention he wants to go somewhere with a good qb situation.

Those are the same reasons he won't go to Chicago.

Always thought he was waiting for New York. Still do.

Dont think Carolina is even on his radar. Carolina is not his kind of organization. It has been said by many of his ex-players he is waiting to be handed the reins to the Giants when Tom retires after this season . He would inherit a team with solid defense and offense. Carolina is a rebuilding project, why would anyone come out of retirement for that. I believe he lives in Carolina for the beautiful country, not the panthers.

I agree, but I think he is tired of waiting.

Cowher can pick his job. Nice position to be in and he can wait as long as he wants.

Perfect fit for the Cowboys!!!

And as long as Angelo is GM, there is no way in he'll he would go to the Bears...

Cowboys need him more then he needs them!!

November 6, 2010  10:31 AM ET

Really, in the end. Outside of Bellachick, Cowher is the best coach out there. What team wouldn't want him?

Jerry is reason enough why he wont go there. He needs a coach he can push around.

Yes, we've known this for years. Hasn't his kids graduated by now? Are they professional students?

Only half way through the season and already most of the threads are about coaches who are going to be fired and coaches who are potential replacements. Maybe it's time to give some new faces a look instead of just recycling the same old names. Spagnuolo and Tomlin are good examples. Singletary, maybe not so much at this point, but owners need to start looking more deeply into the coaching pool.

Also, Mike Smith of the Atlanta Falcons. I agree with your point. There should be some good candidates out there, not same old, same old.

Hopefully when teams start to clean house on January 3rd, Jerry Angelo will be among the first "casualties".
