Bill Cowher = Don Draper?

Written by Dan Gigler on .


The New York Observer reports that former Steelers coach Bill Cowher has plunked down a pretty penny for some sweet Manhattan digs, and in doing so creates their own unfounded gossip/speculation that the Chin has eyes on the Giants job:

"Mr. Cowher, the former head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers and current studio analyst for NFL Today plunked down $2.65 million for the two-bedroom condo at 188 East 64th Street, according to city records. He purchased the pad under the William L. Cowher Revocable Trust from Whitebar Holdings Limited.

"At 1,500 square-feet, the place isn’t exactly a football field, but it does include a wrap balcony and views from the 36th floor, including some of Central Park—head coaches seem to enjoy seeing the city from the nosebleed section. ...

Chez Cowher.
"It’s unclear if the famed coach is abandoning his current place in Raleigh, N.C., altogether or just looking for a place to get away. Or perhaps he’s been lured north by one of the region’s teams? After all, New York sports writers love nothing more than calling for coach’s heads even a year after they win the championships. Now they have an able recruit. Or he just wants a place to call his own when he’s in town on Sundays to shoot NFL Today.

"Whatever the reason, so long as it brings a pack of Terrible Towel-waving drunks to the quiet streets of the Upper East Side, we’ll be happy."

Backhanded compliment there at the end, Steeler Nation?
