Without checking the stats, my first thought is Bill Cowher with Steelers.

What's amazing is Cowher had the success he did with QBs like Neil O'Donnell and Kordell Stewart. Cowher finally got a QB in Roethlisberger, that was the difference maker.

Define mediocre. Where I come from that is the same as average, to me Gruden would have to improve to be considered mediocre. Getting out scored 2/3 rds of the time in the second half is pathetic, unless you are always up 4 TDS at half and playing backups in quarter 3 & 4. If you grade his record he is a D+ at best, on the ABC scale.

I think you may wanna go check the stats. Cowher was wildly successful his first 4-6 years in Pittsburgh. I have quite a few family members and friends who are Steeler fans, so you find yourself paying attention to what they're doing (naturally, I find myself having a pulse on pretty, much all the teams being I'm a fan of the game first and foremost)

Cowher was far from mediocre during his first 4-6 years.

You are correct. Cowher's first six seasons from 1992-1997, he won no less than 9 games each season, and won the AFC championship in 1995. Cowher only went 9-7 once during those first six season, in 1993.

I take it back then, I must have mixed up Cowher with someone else.
