Steelers coach Mike Tomlin supports incentivizing Rooney Rule

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin discussed his support of a potential incentive structure for the Rooney Rule on Monday. 

“We’ve always taken it from the approach of, punitive if you don’t interview minority candidates or things of that nature,” Tomlin told Kentucky head coach John Calipari on the Coffee with Cal podcast. “I just like the different approach in terms of spinning it 180 and talking about maybe incentivizing those that develop the talent and those that hire the talent.”

The NFL introduced plans to alter the Rooney Rule on May 15. Under the league’s incentive program, teams would move up six slots in the third round for hiring a minority head coach, and 10 slots for hiring a minority general manager. The proposal was tabled on a conference call last week.
