Report: Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin diagnosed with COVID-19

The 2020 NFL season is over, but players and coaches continue to test positive for COVID-19 amid the ongoing pandemic. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and is away from the team facility as he continues to recover. 

Tomlin and the Steelers did a fairly good job of controlling the virus during the season but were forced to shut down their facility last week following several positive COVID-19 tests.

During the season, the Steelers never identified which players tested positive for the coronavirus. However, they did announce which players were placed on the reserve/COVID list. 

Tomlin was scheduled to meet with Ben Roethlisberger and team president Art Rooney II last week to discuss the quarterback's future with the team. It's unclear if that meeting ended up taking place with Tomlin in COVID-19 protocols.
