Mike Tomlin didn’t have the greatest coaching game against the Jaguars, but by in large, he is one of the most successful NFL coaches in history.
In a league where year to year success is hard to sustain unless you are the Patriots, Tomlin hasn’t had a losing season in 11 years.
Be careful what you wish for via PFT.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, some of the team’s limited partners intend to lobby owner Art Rooney to fire of Tomlin and to hire a new coach.
The limited partners, who became involved nearly a decade ago as member of the Rooney family sold their interest in the team after acquiring gaming interests that violate league policy, have no authority over the management of the team, but they have a pipeline to owner Art Rooney. Per the source, they plan to utilize it.
The limited partners who will be pushing for a new coach also are concerned about the team’s lack of discipline, with last year’s Facebook Live fiasco from receiver Antonio Brown a prime example of it.
We will see what happens; sometimes the grass is greener on the other side, other times it is just dead grass and a vacant house.
