Last season, Mike Tomlin ensured of a 15th straight season finishing at .500 or above. Despite the terrible start to this year, the team still has a chance to keep that streak going, but will it continue on past this year?
On Wednesday, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk suggested a possible blockbuster head coaching move involving the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach.
“Maybe [Mike] Tomlin to Carolina. I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens,” Florio said on 93.7 The Fan.
It should be noted that Panthers owner David Tepper is a former Steelers minority owner. The team is desperately in need of leadership after they were forced to fire Matt Rhule after his terrible tenurs produced nothing to build on.
