The Steelers confirmed that Tomlin alongside other personnel had been sent home last week due to a number of cases of coronavirus had broken out amongst the staff.

On Twitter, Tomlin wrote: "I want to thank everyone who reached out to express their concern for my health. Luckily I have had minimal symptoms and I'm thankful to be in good health. I want to thank those media professionals who knew about my situation and respected my privacy. It is very much appreciated.

"I'll be back in the office soon while I continue to work virtually from home. Thanks for your support and well wishes!"

According to, at least three Steelers players - running back James Conner, cornerback Joe Haden and tight end Vance McDonald - as well as a staff member tested positive for COVID-19 during the season.

Tomlin is in his 14th season as head coach of the Steelers, where he has never had a losing campaign whilst making the playoffs nine times and winning a Super Bowl XLIII title following the 2008 regular season.
