Mesmerized? Steelers coach Mike Tomlin fined $100,000

PITTSBURGH – Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been fined $100,000 for interfering with a play against the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving.

The NFL also said Wednesday that it would consider docking Pittsburgh a draft pick “because the conduct affected a play on the field.”

In the third quarter of the Ravens’ 22-20 win last Thursday, Tomlin was standing on the restricted white border between the sideline and field during Jacoby Jones’ kickoff return. Jones had to swerve to avoid colliding with the coach and was tackled after a 73-yard return that might have gone for a touchdown if not for the obstruction. Tomlin briefly stepped onto the field before he jumped back.

He was not penalized during the game for the rule violation.

Tomlin said Tuesday he was “mesmerized” by watching the return on the video board and would accept any punishment.
