Mike Tomlin confirmed on Monday that he has signed COVID-19.
The 48-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers head coach responded to previous reports of his diagnosis in a tweet. He wrote that he was in good health and that his symptoms were “minimal”.
“I would like to thank everyone who has gone out of their way to express concern for my health,” wrote Tomlin. “Fortunately, I had minimal symptoms and I am grateful that I am in good health. I would like to thank the media professionals who knew about my situation and respected my privacy. It is greatly appreciated.
“I’ll be back in the office soon while I continue to work practically from home. Thank you for your support and your best wishes!”

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported on Tomlin’s diagnosis. The Steelers declined to confirm the report, but told NFL Network that staff were sent home from the team facility last week after multiple coronavirus tests were positive.
Nobody else at the Steelers recently confirmed a COVID-19 diagnosis.
