Required Reading: A Class Act Resigns

Bill Cowher was and is a class act.

He will be back, although, as one of his players said, it will be hard to imagine him coaching any team other than the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I found it difficult to see Willie Mays labor as a New York Met, the way I found it awkward to watch Joe Montana as a Kansas City Chief or Michael Jordan as a Washington Wizard.

I wish Coach Cowher's successor all the success in Pittsburgh, and I wish Coach Cowher and the Steelers all the success in their next chapters.

You don't see organizations like the Steelers that frequently, having had only 2 head coaches in the past 38 years. That's just unbelievable in this day and age, as was the reverance with which the organization -- from the owners to the players -- showed for this man.
