Steelers coach fined for comments about officiating, report says

PITTSBURGH — The NFL has fined the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach for criticizing officiating during Sunday's game versus the Atlanta Falcons.

According to our partners at NBC Sports, the league is fining Mike Tomlin $25,000 for calling the quality of officiating a "joke" after the Steelers victory.

“We’ve got to get better as a National Football League,” Tomlin said in his postgame interview. “Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. We’ve got to get them correct. And so I’m pissed about it, to be quite honest with you. But that’s all I’m going to say on it.”

In the Steelers latest game against the Atlanta Falcons, each team had seven penalties called against them.
