CBS Sports: Mike Tomlin 10th-Best Coach in NFL

Published

on

CBS Sports’ Cody Benjamin unveiled his rankings of all 32 NFL head coaches entering the 2021 season, and has the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mike Tomlin as the 10th-best in the league.

“Fourteen years and not a single losing season means Tomlin is an absolute master at keeping his players invested,” Benjamin wrote. “His teams simply do not bottom out. His defensive touch and locker-room chemistry remain evident.”

Still, Tomlin’s track record has its warts, including the team’s lack of playoff success since winning Super Bowl XLIII.

“But he’s not exactly thrived with in-game decisions, and Pittsburgh has tended to fizzle out down the stretch, going 3-6 in the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl in 2010,” Benjamin adds.

Tomlin is entering his 15th season with Pittsburgh, holding a 145-78-1 record.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid took the top spot in the rankings, while New England’s Bill Belichick and Baltimore’s John Harbaugh clocked in second and third, respectively.
