    Cowher rejects Browns; Pioli to be interviewed for GM

    BEREA -- Browns owner Randy Lerner said today that former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher told him he was not interested in joining the Browns.

    Lerner met with the media this morning to announce that Romeo Crennel has been fired as head coach.

    Speculation for his replacement had been centered on Cowher for several weeks, but Lerner said Monday that he met with Cowher on Saturday night and that Cowher said he would not return to coaching in 2009 and asked Lerner to take him off the Browns list of candidates.

    OK from what it makes it sounds like is that the job was basically his if he wanted it. Dodn'tt they hav eto go through the process anyways, including the Rooney Rule. Not that it makes a difference now, but seems strange that he was pretty much given the job if he wanted it.

    Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter
    And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
    But you were everything to me
    And I was begging you please don't go and I said:

    Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
    I'll be waiting all there's left to do is run
    You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
    It's a love story baby just say yes

    It was mentioned but before it was official, and in more of a general sense of who may and may not and now the thread has gone in a completly different direction.

    It was "official" when I put it in the "Axe" thread. Got it from ESPN. No problem.
