Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin Isn’t Sure About Job Security
Giants co-owner John Mara says that he didn’t think winning two Super Bowls gave Tom Coughlin the right to decide when his run as Giants coach comes to an end, and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin agrees with him.
Mike Tomlin isn’t taking anything for granted after winning one ring with the Steelers. Tomlin is 71-41 since becoming the head coach and took the Steelers to another Super Bowl, but he says “I don’t assume that” there’s job security coming off back-to-back 8-8 seasons.
“Hopefully, I’m not one of them [when the season ends],” Tomlin said of having three ex-head coaches on his staff, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
The Steelers don’t take coaching changes lightly and Tomlin is signed through the 2016 season, so there’s no real discussion that Tomlin is coaching for his job this season.
All that said, the Steelers face the possibility of three straight years without a winning record since 1971 and that would increase the pressure for Tomlin even without claiming his job.
