Week 13 Sunday notes 

December, 6, 2009

Those who know former Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher say he is gearing up to return as an NFL coach next season. Cowher is mentally preparing himself and contemplating how he would structure his organization.

With a return on the horizon, many around the league believe the most logical landing spot by far is the Carolina Panthers, where speculation is mounting that Panthers coach John Fox is on the endangered list. Of course, Fox has been there before and always has done what he could to keep his job. But this time, the Panthers have a newly hired president, Danny Morrison, who has no ties or connections to anyone in the organization other than Jerry Richardson.
