Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was named to the NFL Competition Committee Tuesday.
The committee studies all aspects of the game and recommends rules and policy changes to NFL clubs. The group also includes Atlanta Falcons President/CEO Rich McKay, and fellow head coaches Jeff Fisher (St. Louis Rams) and Marvin Lewis (Cincinnati Bengals).
"Coach Tomlin will bring additional strength to the committee from the coaching perspective," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. "Mike has strong, perceptive views about the game and is effective in expressing them. We look forward to his contributions to the committee's ongoing mission to improve the game."
Tomlin has served on the Coaches Subcommittee of the Competition Committee since 2009. He replaces the spot held through the 2012 season by former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
