Tomlin, Steelers Have Tentative Deal
Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin accepted an offer today to become the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, an NFL source said.
He succeeds Bill Cowher, who resigned after 15 seasons as the Steelers' coach.
The Steelers' other finalists were their offensive line coach, Russ Grimm, and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.
After people familiar with the Steelers' search said Saturday that Tomlin had emerged as the favorite, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported today that Grimm had accepted the job. The Steelers issued a written statement this morning saying they hadn't completed a contract agreement with any coach.
