Tomlin is Keeping Dick Lebeau

New Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will be introduced at a 3:30 press conference today. He is in the process of negotiating a four-year deal worth approximately $10 million.
The bigger news is that Tomlin, who ran a 4-3 defense in Minnesota, is retaining Steeler defensive coordinator Dick Lebeau in his current capacity. Tomlin's offensive coordinator plans have not yet been revealed. Maybe he can hire that guy who just left the Cowboys.

I really like what I heard from him at the press conference today.

What's the over under on how long it takes the tuna to get back into NFL coaching?

Dennis said...

I'd say within 3 years he'll be back in the NFL but probably as a GM.

I wish I could have seen anything from the press conference. ESPN has turned into the ALL PARCELLS NETWROK for some unknown reason.

I like the choice of Tomlin and keeping LeBeau is a great move.

It is also on Scouts.com but you need a subscription for that so I can't link to it since I'm not a customer.
