    Ed Tomlin, father of Mike Tomlin, dies at 63

    By Josh Katzowitz

    According to the Beaver County Times, the father of Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has died after suffering a heart attack in Ocala, Fla.

    Ed Tomlin was 63.

    As the Ocala Star-Banner writes, Tomlin was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in 1968, and he played eight games in Montreal of the CFL that season. In 2003, Tomlin became the president of the Marion County (Fla.) chapter of the NAACP.

    He apparently suffered the heart attack after returning home from a day of fishing.

    "He loved people. He was very knowledgeable, outgoing and loved fishing," Mazella Tomlin, Ed Tomlin's wife of 12 years, told the Star-Banner.

    Said Whitfield Jenkins, another former NCAAP president: "He added a lot to the NAACP. He was a leader and had the ability to draw people to him. He worked well with a broad category of people across race lines. He was a very thoughtful person and had a great knowledge of the community history and civil rights history.

    Awful news...R.I.P. Papa Tomlin...


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.
