The CBS pregame show was proceeding as planned as the panel previewed the upcoming game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Tennessee Titans, until a special guest came out. Pro Football Hall of Fame President David Baker came onto the set and let Bill Cowher know that he had been selected for enshrinement in 2020.
Cowher enters as part of the Centennial Class of 2020 and he could not hold back his emotions. His family was on set with him and he was genuinely surprised and honored to be given the news.
Cowher was the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1992-2006. He won Super Bowl XL and finished with an impressive overall record of 161-99-1.
The now Hall of Fame coach could still be coaching in the NFL if he wanted, but clearly he did not have anything else to prove. He has been given the ultimate honor and got to celebrate the news in front of the entire country.
