Despite the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers missed the postseason for the first time in three years, good news for longtime head coach Mike Tomlin is that he can once again hang his hat on the fact that he led his team to a winning season at 9-8 overall while overcoming a poor start that was marred with injury woes. That's 19 straight years with a winning record for Tomlin, in case you were keeping track at home. 

Tomlin decided to talk about his future on "The Rich Eisen Show", and divulged the fact that he absolutely love what he does.

"It is so easy to be quite honest with you. I'm not going to act like it's hard. First, I absolutely love football, I love the challenges that this profession and my job presents. I love working with players and helping them grow," answered Tomlin.

So, what are the chances of him eventually landing in the broadcast booth the way that several of his coaching peers have done in their careers? 

"I just really don't have a strong desire to evaluate my peers in that way, to participate in the game that way. I respect it and I appreciate it. It's just not my area of expertise or desire. I like to get my nails a little bit more dirty," said Tomlin.

It sure sounds like Steelers fans don't have anything to worry about in terms of having a new head coach any time soon with these latest comments from Tomlin.
