PITTSBURGH (GSM) — The Steelers announced Head Coach Mike Tomlin will stay around a while. At least for one more year.
Since 2007, Tomlin has been in his position. Prior to coming to the Steelers, he was a defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings and defensive backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy.
“Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we pursue our goal of winning another championship.” – Steelers owner Art Rooney II
Tomlin’s record as head coach is 131–71–1 (.648) including the post-season with a 1-1 Super Bowl record. The Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII against the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 and were defeated by the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV 31-25.
PITTSBURGH (GSM) – Wide receiver Diontae Johnson was drafted by the Steelers in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Toledo. At 5′ 11″ Johnson ran a 40-yard-dash time of 4.53.
Receivers coach Darryl Drake, excited about the pick, said “[Johnson] can make people miss in open space,” an attribute he says is more important than speed.
