In a rare sit down appearance, Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach, Mike Tomlin joins The Pivot for a candid conversation talking about impactful moments over the years and sharing untold stories from Super Bowls to coaching dynamic players to inside look of being the NFL's only current black Head Coach.
Ryan, who played for Coach Tomlin, reminisces through their Super Bowl runs and legendary defense the team assembled in the late 2000's while Fred is eager to ask the question of why Coach didn't try to sign him when he became a free agent after all those high yardage games at Heinz Field. In awe of the relationship Mike T has developed his with the men who played for him, Channing enviously asks what is the secret to earning the respect of all and never having a losing season in 15 years.
Continuing the conversation, the guys get into minority hiring around the league and how Brian Flores ended up as part of the current staff after controversy surrounded his release.
