Perry Fewell may be having trouble making up his mind about whether or not he'd like to coach for the Giants, but at least one Super Bowl-winning coach has no such hesitations. That would be Bill Cowher, who, according to former player Jerome Bettis in an interview on SIRIUS XM’s Mad Dog Radio channel with host Chris Russo, wants to wear blue.

Here's the transcript:

Chris Russo: “Will we ever see Cowher on the field again?”

Jerome Bettis: “You’re going to see him up close and personal. I think he’s going to be with the Giants. I believe he’s going to be with the Giants. I think that’s the team that he really coveted. This is where he always wanted to be. The Mara family, he’s been very close to them. … He’s known them very well and was on the inside track, before the Giants won the Super Bowl, for that job and I think he’s holding out for that opportunity if it presents itself.”

Russo: “So you think if Coughlin didn’t make a run you think Cowher would have gotten the job.”

Bettis: “He would have definitely gotten the job and if Coughlin doesn’t get that team back in the right direction next year I think they’ll pull the plug.”

Russo: “That’s a very tough call. I’m not sure. He’s older, Tom. But you think Cowher is going to sit…”

Bettis: “That’s what he’s doing.”

Russo: “You think the Giants is what he’s got his eyes on.”

Bettis: “That’s where he’s got his eyes. … Let me tell you the one thing I do know. I do know, because he told me, he doesn’t want to go anywhere that doesn’t have an established quarterback. He said he’s tired of doing the let me find a quarterback thing because in Pittsburgh he never had a quarterback until Roethlisberger and then he was like, ‘Hey, I’m ready to go. I finally got a quarterback.’ That’s not what he’s going to do again. He’s going to have an established quarterback wherever he goes.”
