Thumbs up Official Welcome to Pittsburgh Coach Tomlin thread.

Steelers pick Tomlin as head coach
Sunday, January 21, 2007

By Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette





Mike Tomlin







The Steelers have informed Mike Tomlin, the Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator, that he will be their next head coach. The team plans a news conference to announce his hiring.

The sides were negotiating a contract tonight for four years and an option year. The Steelers made their decision today between Russ Grimm, their assistant head coach and offensive line coach, and Tomlin. They informed Grimm today that they had chosen Tomlin.

if this is the case, the only hold up was to see if the bears would lose so the steelers could use rivera as leverage to save 50 bucks.

wow this will be interesting, let's hope this works out..

Fox Sports

"The two sides have agreed to terms on a multi-year deal that is believed to be comparable to the four-year, $10 million deal Cam Cameron reached with the Miami Dolphins.

The Steelers are expected to officially announce Tomlin as their coach Monday.

Tomlin was originally scheduled to fly to Mobile, Alabama for this week's Senior Bowl but was asked by Pittsburgh brass to not get on the plane.

Calls to Tomlin have not been returned but sources close to the coach said he expects to be able to work out the terms of the contract with the Steelers by this evening."

I'm going to merge this thread with AvoidLloyd's, Jeremy.

Please- pretty please with a cherry on top everyone- post all of your comments regarding the Steelers new HC in this thread. Pings to the side of the head to all who don't comply.

Welcome Coach.

Hey, if it is 2.5 million a year it won't make Tomlin the lowest payed coach in the league.

That would also be about the same Whisenhunt.
