New Steelers Coach

It looks like the Steelers have selected a new coach. It's not former offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt who opted to take the head coach position at Arizona. Nor is it former assistant head coach and line coach (and former Washington Redskin Hog) Russ Grimm.

Instead it is Mike Tomlin, the one year defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings.

With Whisenhunt leaving, it probably means Mark Whipple - the Steelers QB coach will also depart to the Cardinals. Those are the two guys who have worked the most with Roelisberger thus far. Here's hoping Tomlin is a good coach, and he can find some coaches that Roelisberger can get along with and grow under.
