    For those of y'all asking "why was he SOO mad?!".

    Being a coach in the NFL IS the pinnacle of coaching football. Being the coach of a storied and stable franchise such as the Pittsburgh Steelers is damn near icing on the cake. Anything less is simply a downgrade.

    So everyone suggesting that this black man should take a demotion for a little more money, when he is already rich, is an insult.

    I tell you one thing, his answer was essentially the culmination of dealing with racists fans and reporters for 10+ years:russ:

    @Francium more conformation UCLA runs the city. Tomlin would never speak this way about the Bruins :wow:. @Silkk somewhere at happy hour ordering a bucket of O’duls wondering why nobody wants them :mjcry:

    I get that, but being a major college coach in 2021 is different

    It's not like the 90s where guys coached in college with hopes of making nfl coach money.

    In his case, yeah if he got fired he'd easily get another head nfl job. I just felt his reaction was kinda a bit extra. It's not like this usc rumor has been doggin him for months and he finally had enough of it.

    It's still inferior to being an NFL coach no matter how you look at it.

    In college you can be the governor of the state. In the NFL you're always secondary to your QB, and with extremely few exceptions, are always a bad QB injury or misdraft away from being fired

    Those perks mean nothing to someone like Tomlin with an established resume though. He would have countless NFL teams calling his agent down within 24 hours of him and Pittsburgh parting ways.

    Probably the only black coach who will get a second chance right away if Pittsburgh fire him

    Why would that even conceptually be surprising?

    If these are actual deterrents, then why are so many NFL coaches staying in the NFL even after they get canned?

    They'd rather become a defensive coordinator for the Vikings than take a head coaching gig at a big school.

    College really isn’t a downgrade anymore… you gotta do more work, but you make more money, and get more respect if you win
