Some rumors have begun to surface that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin could be a candidate for the USC and LSU jobs openings.

On Tuesday, Tomlin was asked about those rumors and completely shut down the speculation. Per Football Scoop:
quote:

"Hey guys. I don't have time for that speculation. That's a joke to me," he started off by sharing.

"I have one of the best job in all of professional sport. Why would I have any interest in coaching college football? Never say never. But never."

Then came a line that should slam the door shut.

"There's not a booster with a big enough blank check."

That is the reaction of a man who knows exactly why his name was brought up. What people don't realize is that the vast majority of minorities don't appreciate the woke culture that projects them to be some weak, helpless protected species of human. It's insulting, and Tomlin's reaction shows exactly that. Good for him.

Damn! I really thought Lincoln Riley was going to be able to bring Tomlin in as DC when he got to Baton Rouge.

Hey dude, go whine to your boy Ryan Clark. He started all this.

Yeah, Ryan Clark should feel like a huge jackass right now, but he will probably act like it wasn't him who started any rumor about that.

@Big, this is exhibit 465 as to why we should never listen to anything RC says.

Not a booster with a big enough check? Well that's a lie. Everybody has a price. Everybody.

No reason to get so offended. He acts like it’s personal, which more than likely means he thinks people want a black man to be demoted instead of a white man like the two coaches he mentioned. There’s so much anger from the left that there’s not enough black coaches in the NFL, but it’s kind of hard to do that when they only make up 13% of the population.

Tomlin being offended that people are saying the Steelers are in tank mode and he wants to leave equates something about the left? Lol paranoia runs deep I see

Found a way to fill 70% of the team with players from that 13% population. Feel stupid?

Which is odd because the fans were giving him the ultimate compliment.

After years of placating Antonio Brown and his unique style of crazy, he wants no part of recruiting 17 year olds.

Saban didnt last in the NFL because he couldn't be a czar like he was in college. The Jimmy Johnson types who can do both are rare

He sounds mad- I guess it’s insulting to him- and maybe with good reason.

Personally, I love Tomlin. And he’s 100% correct. Who in their right mind would leave what he’s got in Pburgh to coach college ball and put up with all the crap it entails. Plus, I applaud him for getting pissed he’s being asked simply bc he’s black and the “wokies” think LSU HAS to offer a black coach the job. Tomlin is one of the top 3 coaches in the NFL, but hiring the MSU guy is no better (at this point) than Ed hiring Jones and Peetz.

Wrong. I think it's honorable to be mentioned as a potential head coach at one of the top college jobs in the country.
