Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher is moving on up to a deluxe condo on the east side.
The New York Observer reports Wednesday that Cowher paid $2.65 million for a 1,500 square foot, two bedroom, condo in Manhattan\’s Upper East Side recently, that overlooks portions of Central Park.
While most everyone will try to speculate that this means Cowher is setting himself up to be the new head coach of either the New York Giants or New York Jets, the reality is that Cowher, who does the pregame show for CBS, is just getting closer to the studios in New York.
Cowher still has his residence outside Raleigh, N.C., where he\’s reportedly been living since the passing of his wife, Kaye, in 2010.
For now it appears that Cowher is comfortable doing television and has no current plans to return to coaching. If you want to speculate, though, Cleveland would be as good of place as any for Cowher to land, as the Browns very well could clean house after the 2012 season if things go like most of us expect they will.
Former Steelers investor Jimmy Haslam now owns the Browns and the fit with Cowher, who coached and played in Cleveland, would be a natural one.
