Both sides are officially denying it thus far, but that's the usual tack when something gets leaked. When you talk about high-pressure coaching jobs in sports, the Pittsburgh gig has to be at or near the top.

Profootballtalk.com gets some kudos for this, as they picked Tomlin for the Steelers job over a month ago.
I don't know what is more disquieting -- the fact that the rest of the statue is missing, or that it has four toes.
The hack coach known as Pete Carroll was on ESPN radio yesterday talking about his team and one of his new starters this year will be Mosi Tatupu Jr. Of course, I now can't think of Mosi without thinking of the Simpsons now.
