While attending Carlynton High, Bill showed prowess in multiple sports such as track, basketball and football. After matriculating, he attended North Carolina State University where he played football as a linebacker, and was the team captain. He graduated in 1979, finishing a degree in education.

In the same year, he was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles but moved to the Cleveland Browns after a season. He played three seasons with Cleveland and was then traded back to Philadelphia, playing another two years. Eventually, he decided to pursue a career in coaching when he was just 28. He became a special teams coach for the Cleveland Browns and worked under Marty Schottenheimer. After a year, he became the secondary coach and then followed Marty to the Kansas City Chiefs as defensive coordinator. His net worth was well established.

In 1992, he succeeded Chuck Noll to become the 15th head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team would improve greatly, making the play-offs in his first six years which tied the record, and Bill became the youngest coach to lead a team to the Super Bowl. During his 15 year tenure, he captured eight division titles and made the play-offs 10 times. They also went to six AFC Championship games and had two Super Bowl appearances. In 2006, the Steelers would win Super Bowl XL after defeating the Seattle Seahawks. The following year, Cowher stepped down from his position as head coach to spend more time with his family.

After he left the Steelers, he became part of the show “The NFL Today” as an analyst. He also made an appearance in the reality television show “Fast Cars and Superstars: The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race” in which he competed against William Shatner. He stated in an episode of “The NFL Today” that he has no plans to coach in the immediate future. In 2010, he became a speaker for the National Agents Alliance, and he also had a small role in “The Dark Knight Rises” as the head coach of the Gotham Rogues. He has also appeared in a commercial for Time Warner Cable and is on the cover of the game “NFL Head Coach”. His net worth certainly remains steady.

For his personal life, his wife Kaye Young(m. 1983) died of skin cancer during 2010; she used to play professional basketball for the New York Stars. They have three daughters, all of whom played college basketball and two would go on and have athletes as husbands.
