Report: Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin diagnosed with coronavirus

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says 'a couple positives came up'

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The 48-year-old is currently away from the team facility.

“A team spokesman would not confirm the specific case," per Rapoport, "but did say members of the coaching and personnel staffs were sent home last week after a couple positives came up."

Since the team won’t confirm the report, it is unknown to what extent the symptoms Tomlin may be experiencing.

The Steelers remained relatively unfazed by COVID-19 during the season, at least, in their own locker room.

Due to an outbreak in the Tennessee Titans facility, the Steelers bye week was essentially eliminated. The team was also impacted due to an outbreak within the Baltimore Ravens facility, which forced the Steelers' Thanksgiving night game to be postponed, wiping out any hope of a couple days off.

But the Steelers were not perfect, either. James Conner, Eric Ebron and Joe Haden were just some of the players who were diagnosed with the virus during the season.
