Breaking News -- Cowher to Resign Friday

In a story that is as fluid as the cnfluence of the Allegheny, Monogahela, and Ohio rivers, Gerry Dulac of thePittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Bill Cowher is set to resign as head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers at a 1:00PM (EST) news conference in Pittsburgh.

According to Mr. Dulac's report Mr. Cowher "said last week he still loves to coach and is not 'burned out' from being the longest-tenured head coach in the National Football League. However, he wants to take at least a one-year break from coaching and is not thinking about joining any other team in 2007, whether in the NFL or college football, sources said.

Those same sources have also said Cowher's decision to retire has nothing to do with money and that he is committed to spending the next year with his wife, Kaye, and youngest daughter, Lindsay, in Raleigh, N.C.

For those who will be at a computer, but not near a television, on Friday WTAE-TV is indicating on its website that they will webcast the news conference.
