Would they really need to negotiate a contract with Russ Grimm since he's already under contract?

Even the Rooneys reluctantly recognize you have to give someone a raise when they are promoted to a HC position.

How much does Grimm make now? I wouldn't think that he's that far off of your normal HC salary.

Mortenson at 10:40 - "reputable league sources" say Tomlin is the choice. Mort acknowedges Trib-Review says it is Grimm but sticks with story it is Tomlin.

Hire of Tomlin over Grimm is to "re-energize" franchise through outside hire.

Mort "anxious" to see what Rooneys do - so it sounds like it still could be Grimm.

ESPN stands to lose a lot of respect if it turns out to be Grimm.

But they can't lose my respect because they never had it.

There are no public records of NFL coaching salaries but I bet no Steeler assistant makes close to the average HC salary - only the redskins and Dolphins lay out that kind of $$$ for assistants. In fact, I bet the new Steeler HC will not make more than Dom Capers and the 2 Redskins coordinators.

And of the three teams involved, who has the best chance of making the playoffs? Slick Wayne and the Boy Billionaire have no idea how to run a winning football franchise.

It sounds like Mortenson waited to go with the Tomlin story only after he independently sourced it.

If both ESPN and SI got it wrong while a rag like the Trib-Review got it right that would be like the 2006 Raiders winning the Super Bowl.

No disagreement from me - simply saying Grimm gets a raise if he gets the job.

Mort's been wrong before. Not much, but he has been wrong. SI is totally useless for breaking news because they have some of the worst guys in the business.
