Tomlin takes ninth spot on NFL coach power rankings

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

In their preseason power rankings of NFL head coaches, Steelers' coach Mike Tomlin is ranked just inside of the top 10 for nfl.com

Earlier this afternoon, Elliot Harrison released power rankings for each of the 32 NFL head coaches.

Pittsburgh Steelers' head coach, Mike Tomlin, came in at 9th in the rankings. This placed him in between Andy Reid (10) and John Fox (8).

The team's recent back-to-back 8-8 seasons have changed public perception of the Pittsburgh coach as he enters his eighth year with the Steelers.  The same coach that won two AFC championships and a Super Bowl in his first four seasons with the team has run into questions as to whether or not he is, or should be, in the coaching hot seat in Pittsburgh.

Tomlin ranks in this list as the lowest ranked head coach who has won a Super Bowl championship during their tenure(s) as head coach in the NFL.

Ahead of him is Seattle Seahawks' coach, Pete Carroll (7), Green Bay Packers' coach Mike McCarthy (6), New York Giants' Tom Coughlin (5), Baltimore Ravens' coach, John Harbaugh (4) and his brother Jim Harbaugh (3).

The top two coaches were Sean Payton (2) of the New Orleans Saints and Bill Belichek of the New England Patriots (1).
