He could have left last year, remember? But then again, maybe the jobs open weren't enticing enough.

Tomlin on Steelers' interview list
Sunday, January 07, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have received permission to interview Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin for their head coaching position.

Tomlin, 34, finished his first season directing the Vikings' defense. He joined them last year after coaching the defensive backs at Tampa Bay the previous five years. He also coached the Cincinnati Bengals' defensive backs in 1999 and 2000.

Before he became an NFL assistant, he was an assistant coach at three different colleges from 1995 through 1998. He played wide receiver at William & Mary.

Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga met in Pittsburgh last night with Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt to talk about the head coaching job in Miami. Huizenga was joined by Joe Bailey, the Dolphins' chief executive officer, and club president Bryan Wiedmeier.

ESPN is saying the Falcons may name a HC tommorrow. Whisenhunt is supposed to interview for the Steelers job on Tuesday. The Falcons are jumping on him before the Steelers get a chance to interview him. Whisenhunt is going to be the next Falcons coach.

Maybe he's already turned the Atlanta gig down.....it's not like he doesn't and has always had the inside scoop in the Rooney camp.

You do not need permission to talk with your own assistants during the season - I assume the Steelers have been engaged in "what if" conversations with Grimm and Whiz since last spring. FWIW Peter King said on NBC last night that Singletary and the Cal coach were the leading candidates for the Falcons job.

peter king also debunked the myth that the new coach needs to be a "pittsburgh guy"

Tomlin is a young, aggressive "defensive minded" coach. With experience as a position Coach as well as coordinator. (Not to mention his eagerness to prove himself as a HC would mean the Rooneys wouldn't have to "break the bank" so to speak)
Hmmm,......sounds familiar.
