Cowher: Roethlisberger Finally Showing Maturity

Former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher
says it was hard to get through to Ben Roethlisberger after his
early success, but now "you're going to see a different person."

The quarterback was suspended six games after a Georgia college
student accused him of sexual assault. Although he was not charged,
commissioner Roger Goodell cited a "pattern of behavior" that set
a bad example.

Under Cowher in 2006, Roethlisberger became the youngest
quarterback to win a Super Bowl. Cowher told The Associated Press
on Tuesday that with his early success, Roethlisberger's reaction
to advice about his off-field actions was: "But we're winning
games. We're wining championships."

Cowher's says his response was, "Yeah, but there's more to it
than that."

The former coach says, "I really think he understands that
now."
