He coached wide receivers and defensive backs in college for a number of years before making the jump to the National Football League and joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization as their defensive backs coach. Tomlin was part of the staff that helped lead the Buccaneers to the 2003 Super Bowl win. Mike continued to climb through the coaching ranks and became the defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2006 season before being named the head coach of the Steelers beginning in 2007. Since he took over the Steelers in 2007, he has led the team to five division titles, two AFC championships, and a Super Bowl win. In 2008, he was named the NFL Coach of the Year after leading the Steelers to their sixth championship in Super Bowl XLIII.
