Tomlin to Steelers?

Sports Illustrated's Michael Silver is reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers are hiring Mike Tomlin, defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, as their new head coach.

The Steelers, Tomlin, and ESPN are all denying the report.

For a week, the finalists have been Tomlin, Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, and Steelers offensive line coach Russ Grimm. Hopefully, we'll know something definitive soon.

SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE: As I prepare for worship, ESPN is confirming the hire of Mike Tomlin. On the other hand, the headline in today's Pittsburgh Tribune-Review claims that the Steelers have decided on Russ Grimm. We may know the truth later today.
