Bill Cowher Releases Statement Regarding the Death of Wife Kaye

Bill Cowher released a statement Saturday regarding the death of his wife Kaye, who passed away Friday at the age of 54 from skin cancer.

“Kaye was such a loving and compassionate person and she was the foundation of our family,” Cowher said in the statement Saturday. “Kaye was always at my side throughout my career as a player, coach, NFL analyst and, most importantly, as a parent to our three daughters.”

He added: “Kaye was the rock that we could all lean on in the tough times. She was looked up to by so many people and I cannot say enough about what Kaye meant to our family.”

At the time of her death, Kaye Cowher served on the North Carolina State Board of Visitors, which advises the school’s chancellor and board of trustees.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by daughters Meagan, Lauren and Lindsay. All three played or are playing college basketball.

A private funeral service will be held Monday in North Carolina.

    Kaye Cowher was beloved by Steelers fans everywhere for her loving and enthusiastic support of Coach Cowher and his teams, rain or shine, win or lose. But she was far more than an extension of her husband’s celebrity. An outstanding athlete in her own right, she was also a devoted mother to her three daughters, the spirit that united her family, and an exceptional and kind human being. Her passing reminds us of the brevity and fragility of life. But as a model of the virtues she embodied, she will be cherished in our memories forever.

    Our sincere condolences to Coach Cowher, their children, family, and friends. Your loss is ours as well.
