09:06 AM ET 10.29 | It started with a report from CBS.com earlier this week that the Dolphins were in contact with Bill Cowher on some level. It continued Friday with an NFL.com report that Dolphins owner Steve Ross was in contact with Cowher's agent. "Not true,'' Ross said. "I'm not going to reach out to anyone while Tony (Sparano) is the coach. I hope he wins and stays the coach. Neither I nor anyone involved with me has contacted (Cowher), his agent or anyone around him." Is Cowher a prime candidate for next year? Of course. But now? Make no sense on a lot of levels.

Sure. But, it also makes a lot of sense on a lot of levels. The Dolphins suck and hiring Cowher now would give him a chance to take a closer look at what he has to work with and lay a foundation for success next year.

Hire the man!

"Ross offered no explanation for the mysterious spittle stains on his lapel..."

Well if they give him all the money (and women) in Miami, make him Head Coach, GM and President of operations I'd say there's a chance

Maybe they want him for his excellent post season record.....

I doubt he has any desire to go to a dysfunctional team and try to put humpty back together again at this point in his career. Ownership and structural organization mean a lot to this guy. This was never going to happen.

The man is a genius.....He might be a glimmer of grabbing at anything....One the other hand they might want to wish in one hand and poop in the other.....

I think you might be right.

It makes no sense to bring him in mid-season. There is the QB / Draft issue to think about. Wouldn't want to mess that up as well. I don't foresee any mid season coaching changes among the bottom dwellers this year. As offended as Sparano may claim to be at the possibility of "suck for Luck" it is real, and he is right in the thick of it.

If I were Bill Cowher, I'd ask Miami to put him on their Do Not Call list.

October 29, 2011  10:50 AM ET

He called and got caught. Someone in the know had to release this info otherwise it wouldn't be a story. I mean Cowher could have come out immediately and denied it and that didn't happen so its true.

Ross needs to surround himself with celebrities. He will hire the biggest name he can, regardless of anything else.

He could get Gene Hackman to be his "replacement" coach. He even went to USC.
