You think that would happen to Jim Harbaugh or Bill Belichek? What about Cowher? The Rooneys trusted Cowher.... they trusted his ability to build a team. They favored his opinion over the GMs (Tom Donahoe) at the time which resulted in the hiring of his replacement.. Colbert. Clearly, the FO doesn't have the same faith in Tomlin if he isn't allowed anymore to hire his own OC.

It doesn't get more obvious than that.
You would think that, given Tomlin's performance, he would have earned a similar amount of trust to that of Bill Cowher at this point in their respective tenures with the Steelers...

If he hasn't, well, unfortunately, that says more about the FO than it does about him...
