Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has tested positive for COVID-19, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The team wouldn’t confirm Tomlin’s specific case, but multiple coaches, including Tomlin, are away from the team facility according to Rapoport.

Last week Tomlin and others were sent home after “several positive tests,” per Gerry Dulac. Putting two and two together would lead us to believe there has been an outbreak of some sort at the Steelers’ facility.

Tomlin and the Steelers are at a turning point right now, as Ben Roethlisberger has hit a wall and the team is way over the salary cap. This will be a busy offseason for the team, but it looks like they are going to have trouble continuing their winning ways in 2021 unless the front office can pull off a few miracles.

Tomlin has been one of the winningest coaches in the league, sporting a 145-78-1 record and .650 winning percentage along with a Super Bowl victory.
