Tomlin gets spot on competition committee
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been named to the NFL's competition committee.
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was named to the NFL's competition committee on Tuesday.
Commissioner Roger Goodell named Tomlin to the committee to replace former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. Tomlin had worked on the coaches subcommittee of the competition committee since 2009.
The 41-year-old Tomlin is 68-36 in six seasons with the Steelers and led them to victory in the 2009 Super Bowl.
"Mike has strong, perceptive views about the game and is effective in expressing them. We look forward to his contributions to the committee's ongoing mission to improve the game," Goodell said in a statement.
Tomlin said he is "humbled" by the appointment.
"I am excited for the opportunity to help maintain and strengthen the NFL game, and I look forward to contributing any way that I can," he said in a statement.
