Kaye Cowher - Wife of Steelers ex-head coach, dead at 54

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)—Kaye Cowher, the wife of ex-Steelers coach Bill Cowher and a former basketball player at North Carolina State and in the now-defunct Women’s Professional Basketball League, has died of skin cancer. She was 54.

Cowher died Friday in her native North Carolina, where the family relocated at her urging during Cowher’s final year as coach in 2006, one season after the Steelers won the Super Bowl. The family had lived since in Raleigh.

I know this is a Colts blog and that as a fan, I cannot stand the Steelers. However, Bill Cowher has long been held as a universally well respected coach and a good guy. He always wanted the best for his players and his family.

I know that we have several Steeler fan's that post here and at this time, I would just like to send out my condolences to the Cowher and Steeler families on their loss.
