Mike Tomlin linked to Redskins coaching job

Mike Tomlin

It’s very early in the process, but one big name has come up more than once in preliminary reporting regarding who the Washington Redskins might target as their next head coach.

ESPN’s Ed Werder was the first to mention Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin’s name as one of Washington owner Dan Snyder’s preferred candidates. That was backed by CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, who added that finding a way to acquire Tomlin would be Snyder’s “primary objective.”

As La Canfora notes, it remains to be seen how plausible this one is. Tomlin is firmly entrenched in Pittsburgh, having coached the Steelers since 2007, and it’s an organization that’s still in a better place than Washington is right now. That said, there are some affiliated with the Steelers who might not be all that sad to see Tomlin leave.

The 47-year-old Tomlin is 126-70-1 as Pittsburgh’s head coach. He’s 8-7 in the playoffs, with one Super Bowl win.
