Post Says Cowher Turned Down Jets Because of Favre

From: NY Post

While the Jets hoped to woo Bill Cowher with a boatload of money, the marriage appeared to be unlikely from the outset. Sources close to Cowher said he did not want to have Favre as his quarterback, and that he also wanted to bring in people he was familiar with to handle personnel. A source familiar with Cowher’s thinking said before last night’s decision came down that the former Steeler boss would have to receive assurances from the Jets that the 39-year-old Favre no longer was in the picture before agreeing to take control. “There’s no way he’s taking Brett Favre as his quarterback,” said one person close to Cowher.
