Cowher not interested in N.C. State job

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Pittsburgh Steelers Coach Bill Cowher says he is not interested in the open coaching job at North Carolina State, his alma mater.

Wendell Murphy, N.C. State's board of trustees' chairman, posed the question after hearing rumors Cowher might be interested in returning to the school.

"I'm very flattered to hear some of the things that have been coming out, but I'm not a candidate," Cowher told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I have a job here, and my focus really is on this job right here, so you can take me off the list."

Cowher and his wife bought a house recently in Raleigh, N.C., which may have fueled the speculation. There also is a lot of guessing as to whether the defending Super Bowl winning coach will retire soon.
