    Steelers face fine, loss of draft pick

    Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin could be fined at least $100,000 and the team could lose a draft pick as a result of Tomlin interfering with a play by stepping on the field, according to multiple reports.

    The play occurred in the third quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. After Pittsburgh scored to close to 13-7, Baltimore returner Jacoby Jones broke free down the sideline on the ensuing kickoff but slowed up with Tomlin on the white stripe near the field of play — with his foot on the field at one point as Jones neared his location.

    Tomlin, who had his back to the play, was not penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. He said he did not think he interfered with Jones.

    The NFL fined the New York Jets $100,000 in 2010 when strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi tripped a Miami Dolphins player running down the sideline.

    Tomlin is on the league’s competition committee, which helps make new rules.

    I am not the one to say coaches should be fired.
    However, if this happens, Tomlin needs to go. The
    Head Coach being the reason we lose draft picks is
    unacceptable to me. Also 2 non playoff years doesn't
    help either.

    Bill Cowher had 3 straight years of missing the playoffs. Tomlin deserves to be the coach of the Steelers regardless of our record this year and if we lose a draft pick (I dont believe that is likely. Miami's ST coach actually tripped a guy and only received $100,000 fine).

    I'm willing to bet anyone 20$ that we don't lose a draft pick. It's just another fabricated story from the reporters.

    Fine him, suspend him a game but don't take a freaking draft pick. That would be unreal, it didn't alter the outcome of the game. Hopefully it's just more bs from the wonderful nfl reporters

    I always joke with my friends that there is an anti-steeler bias in the NFL. if we lose a draft pick for this then I will actually believe it. The Cheatriots lose a draft pick for CHEATING IN THE SUPERBOWL and you're going to take away a draft pick from us for this?
