The Steelers public relations team has been busy lately.
Along with quelling fires by getting team-issued statements regarding the future employment of its starting quarterback and speaking in regards to coaches being on the field, they're having to make sure some information goes out about that same coach not being interested in coaching in college.
Credit Steelers Digest editor Bob Labriola with an effort to singe some kind of interest or reader value into his piece declaring Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is not interested in coaching at the collegiate level.
No one really thought Tomlin had particular interest in leaving his NFL head coaching position as well as his seat on the league's competition committee, but it was worth a stab by those at the University of Texas who want to pull the strings of the athletic department.
They made their best efforts to make it seem like there was legitimate interest, just like they did with Jim Harbaugh, and Mike McCarthy after them. Just like Labriola put in the time and effort to craft an actual story, instead of what was likely a "no thank you" response from Tomlin, when first asked to comment.
