End of an Era

On Friday, Bill Cowher announced he was leaving his position as coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Having been the longest-tenured coach in the league for the past 8 years, and having won a SuperBowl, and been to 5 AFC championship games. I'd say he's earned the right to leave the position with his head held high.

I hope the Steelers promote someone from within the organization to replace him rather than hiring a new coach. My first choice would be offensive coordinator Ken Wisenhunt. The Steelers aren't exactly experienced at hiring head coaches (they've had two since 1969 - Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher), but the ones they've chosen have been incredibly successful. Let's hope they go 3-3.
