Episode 79 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features CBS NFL analyst Bill Cowher, who works as a pregame analyst on The NFL Today and Thursday Night Football.
In this episode, Cowher discusses his journey from Super Bowl-winning coach to broadcaster; how he prepares each week for his two roles; the toughest adjustment in broadcasting; how he would feel if one of his players decided to take a knee during the national anthem; how to remain objective for viewers despite having coaching friends in the league; the best locker room speech he gave; whether NFL teams will stop asking him about returning to coaching; embarrassing himself in front of Mick Jagger on two separate occasions; traveling on the road with his musician-wife Victoria, who is known professionally as Queen V; the joys of spin cycle and yoga and not being recognized every day; being the father-in-law of two professional athletes, and much more.
