Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has found his name floating around the college football coaching rumor mill with high-profile jobs like USC and LSU on the table. Tomlin squashed any chance of him leaving the Steelers for those – or any – college jobs.

"I don't have time for that speculation,” Tomlin said when asked about other college job openings during his weekly Tuesday press conference. “I mean, that's a joke to me.

“I've got one of the best jobs in all of professional sports. Why would I have any interest in coaching college football? That will be the last time that I address it, not only today but moving forward. Never say never, but never. Anybody got any questions about any college jobs? There's not a booster with a big-enough blank check."

Tomlin added: "Anybody asking Sean Payton about that? Anybody asking Andy Reid about stuff like that?"

The Steelers' head coach then walked out the press conference.

Tomlin, 49, is in his 15th season as the Steelers’ head coach. He carries a 146-79-1 career regular season record, along with one Super Bowl title, one losing trip to the Super Bowl, another AFC championship game appearance and seven AFC North titles. The Steelers are 3-3 after Week 7, and in last place in the AFC North in 2021.
