Mike Tomlin added to Competition Committee Dan Leberfeld

Head coach MIKE TOMLIN of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been named to the NFL Competition Committee by Commissioner ROGER GOODELL, the NFL announced today.

Tomlin was named the 16th head coach in franchise history on January 22, 2007. Hired at the age of 34, Tomlin has compiled a 68-36 record in his six seasons, leading the Steelers to two Super Bowl appearances.

Tomlin became the youngest head coach in NFL history to both coach in and win a Super Bowl when he led the Steelers to a 27-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.

Tomlin, who has served on the Coaches Subcommittee of the Competition Committee since 2009, fills the position on the committee held through the 2012 season by former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

“I am humbled and honored to be selected to the Competition Committee by Commissioner Goodell,” Tomlin said. “I am excited for the opportunity to help maintain and strengthen the NFL game, and I look forward to contributing any way that I can.”

The Competition Committee studies all aspects of the game and recommends rules and policy changes to NFL clubs. It consists of the following members:
