Keeping with their history of hiring thirty-somethings, the Rooney’s chose 34-year-old Mike Tomlin as their head coach today, despite what my little lying ass birdie told me previously.
However, my little birdie did say that the Steelers weren’t hiring Grimm because they wanted a complete overhaul of Steelers football. Looks like they’ll get that with Tomlin.
I’m actually very very pleased with this choice. He’s young. He’s likable. He’s got some personality according to this video! I’m very pleased with the white boy Rooney’s for not just interviewing a black candidate due to the NFL Rooney Rule, but then actually going ahead and choosing the guy.
Well played, Rooneys. Well played.
I’m totally psyched for next season.
Poor Russ Grimm. I guess that six hour interview must have been full of questions like, “If we don’t hire you, you won’t kill yourself will you?”
