Steelers CB Joe Haden’s strong reaction to Mike Tomlin firing back at USC rumors

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden couldn’t hide his admiration for head coach Mike Tomlin, who handled the USC rumors surrounding him in perfect fashion.

On Tuesday, Tomlin put all the rumors of him being linked to the USC Trojans to rest, declaring he has no plans of leaving the Steelers franchise for a college job. The 49-year-old coach emphasized he has “one of the best jobs in all of professional sports” and he wouldn’t exchange it for anything else.

Upon hearing the commitment of his coach to the Steelers, Haden was deeply in awe of Tomlin. He said so as much in his talk with reporters on Wednesday.

“I was watching that interview smiling ear-to-ear like, ‘look at coach. Handling business,'” Haden said, per Sports Illustrated. “When your coach carries himself like that. He’s a leader of men. He does everything the right way. I love coach Tomlin and everything he stands for.”

As if it was not enough, the three-time Pro Bowler also took to Twitter to share his commitment to Mike Tomlin–perhaps in a desire to show his Steelers coach that he is following his footsteps.

Tomlin is one of the most popular coaches in the NFL. He is well-respected around the league, with Green Bay packers QB and future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers often speaking fondly of the Steelers tactician.

While the Steelers are struggling on the season, currently at 3-3 after seven weeks of football, it doesn’t look like Tomlin is going anywhere.
