Decade of Power: The Pittsburgh Steelers in the Cowher Era: From the Pages of the Pittsburg H Post-Gazette
by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Book Description: The Steelers had to find a man to replace the only coach in NFL history to win four Super Bowl championships. Less than a month later the Steelers settled on a native son, Crafton native and Carlynton High School graduate Bill Cowher, and gave him an assignment that was as simple as it was awesome: Revive one of the league's cornerstone franchises and return it to the glory of the 1970s when Noll's black and gold ruled the world of pro football. It didn't take long for Steelers fans to realize that Cowher was the right man for the job.
His team immediately reflected his own thundering, swaggering personality. The Steelers took chances and played with a renewed vigor that caught the NFL by surprise. Cowher's first team gave Pittsburgh its first AFC Central championship in eight years and he was named NFL coach of the year for 1992. The 11-5 record that season was the Steelers' best since their last trip to the Super Bowl in January 1980.
And the winning didn't stop there. Cowher took the Steelers to pro football's pinnacle - Super Bowl XXX - in the 1995 season, this despite stumbling to a 3-4 start and losing defensive star Rod Woodson for the season to a torn knee ligament in the opening game. At 38, Cowher became the youngest coach to lead his team to a Super Bowl and, despite a less-than-satisfying outcome against Dallas in the Super Bowl, he had firmly established himself as one of the league's premier coaches.
Ten years into his reign, Cowher remains at the top of the game. After a three-year absence from the playoffs, the Steelers returned to prominence in 2001 and came within one win of playing again in the Super Bowl. And Cowher reminded Steelers fans not to count him out - or count story-of-the-year ballots - before his team has its final say.
