Bill Cowher gets Hall of Fame surprise on live TV

CBS analyst Bill Cowher received a ‘Hall’ of a surprise on Saturday night.

The longtime Steelers coach — who led Pittsburgh to a Super Bowl title in 2005 — was told during the network’s pregame show for the Ravens-Titans game that he would be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2020 centennial class.

Cowher was talking about Lamar Jackson with Phil Simms when he was surprisingly interrupted by Hall of Fame president David Baker who gave him the news.

“This isn’t right that this is happening now,” Cowher said with a smile.

The crew on the CBS set then came to congratulate him along with Cowher’s wife and daughter who also attended the celebration.

“I’m a blessed man, and I’ve been very blessed to be surrounded by some pretty special people,” Cowher said.

Cowher won his won Super Bowl as a coach in 2005 when the Steelers defeated the Seahawks, 21-10. He also led Pittsburgh to another Super Bowl appearance in 1995, where it lost to the Dallas Cowboys, 27-17.

The 62-year-old Cowher coached the Steelers for 15 seasons from 1992 to 2006, leading Pittsburgh to a 149-90-1 regular-season record, 10 playoff appearances and eight division titles (including five in his first six seasons). He took home AP Coach of the Year honors in his first year on the job.

Cowher, a former linebacker for the Eagles and Browns in the early 1980s, was a special teams and defensive backs coach with the Browns from 1985 through 1988. After spending three years as defensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers hired Cowher in 1992 to take over for the retiring Chuck Noll.

The full list of inductees will be announced on Super Bowl Weekend during NFL Honors.
