NEW YORK, N.Y. - Bill Cowher insists he's staying in the studio and not returning to the sideline.

Cowher says Saturday on CBS' "The NFL Today" that he has no plans to coach in the NFL, a few days after telling Newsday that he probably would come back at some point. The 55-year-old Cowher is an analyst for CBS who coached the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1992-2006. He won a Super Bowl after the 2005 season.

Cowher says he plans "on being with one team, and that is this team here at CBS. I know we are going to the Super Bowl."

He told Newsday on Tuesday that returning to coaching after a long layoff is motivation for him to come back, but hadn't been contacted by any teams looking for a new coach.
