Coaches

Mike Tomlin ('95) - Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach
Tomlin's Steelers Bio

Headlining the list of coaches and players with ties to the College is 1995 graduate Mike Tomlin, head coach of the 2009 Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tomlin, who was named the 16th head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers on January 22, 2007, is the youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl in NFL history. Tomlin was also named Motorola Coach of the Year for the 2008 season.

Tomlin, who was a four-year letterwinner and three-year starter at receiver for the Tribe, is just the third Steelers Head Coach since the 1969 season.

The last W&M alum to lead an NFL team was Dan Henning, who had two head coaching stints, one with the Atlanta Falcons (1983-1986) and another with the San Diego Chargers (1989-91).

Tomlin was named the head coach in Pittsburgh after spending the 2006 season as the defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings. The position was both his first with the team and as a coordinator, but showed immediate results as he oversaw a unit that ranked eighth in the NFL in total defense.
