Greenhorn Art. Sounds like the usual blah blah blah.

Rooney: Nothing To Read Into With Lack Of Extension For Tomlin
Says they meet later in the offseason every year to discuss coach's future

THE COOK & JOE SHOW
JANUARY 18, 2019 - 12:30 PM

CATEGORIES: Football Pittsburgh Steelers NFL Sports
PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Art Rooney II says not to read too much into holding off discussions of an extension for Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin.

The Steelers president tells Cook and Joe and Tomlin sit down every year to talk about where they “are going with his contract and we typically have had those private conversations later in the year.”

Asked if it was his intention to extend Tomlin’s contract when they do sit down Rooney would only say, “It’s my intention to sit down with Mike and talk about the future like we do every year.”

Rooney also discussed offensive line coach Mike Munchak leaving the Steelers to take the same job in Denver. Rooney says they had conversations with Munchak and wanted him to come back but it was his decision to leave and be closer to be with his daughter and granddaughter.

“I don’t know how long he was thinking about (leaving) but obviously it was important to him that at some point he get back to being in the same city as his daughter and granddaughter,” said Rooney.

When asked why the Steelers let outside linebackers coach Joey Porter go Rooney said, “Coach (Tomlin) felt it was time to make a change there.”

Rooney also talked about the defense and said a combination of coordinator Keith Butler and Mike Tomlin make the play calls.

“Coach Tomlin came up as a defensive coach and I think that he can coach Butler work closely together on that and truth of the matter is, even though it wasn’t everything we would’ve hoped for, statistically we were one of the better defensives in the league this year,” said Rooney.

Asked who made the majority of calls on defense Rooney said, “They work together on it . . . Coach Butler makes most of the calls but certainly Mike is right there beside him the whole game.”


Sounds like a coaching co-op......... all hat and no cattle. Time to blow it the F up.

Just tells you how absolutely clueless and ball-less Art2 is. I would bet he even sucks as a lawyer - no fight at all, just bend over and get rammed up the ass!

these radio guys made a good one, i think it was the morning team. Said Art knew he would be the heir to the Steelers from Dan. As in being prepped into it by family decree. And when he did finally get it, he was always dreading it. That's how his tenure appears....full of empty statements about continuity and whatever.

Time to get a real owner. This guy sucks

He’s definitely not a trial lawyer.

I seriously doubt that Rooney knows nothing. He is, and rightfully so, feeding the media a bunch of nonsense.

I want a change, but I respect that he is not being hasty about this. I seriously doubt Rooney does not have Tomlin on the hotseat. Was it not Art II who issued, " win or else" to Cowher?

Some franchises are driven by data & analytics, on the doorstep of AI. Steelers are powered by handcuffed, limp CEO in the castle and emotion based leader on the battlefield. Only solution I see is time, Tomlin gone after contract, then we'll find out if Rooney can lead from behind and leapfrog.

Yes. Agree that Art II wants to win.
