I don't know how serious this is is but it's not a big loss if it pans out.  What I find amusing is that top coaches in the nfl tend to have their assistants move on to bigger jobs in the league thereby forming a "coaching tree" that some media and league personnel value.  

Arians, is the only Steeler assistant that comes to mind that has excelled with another franchise.  I don't think he qualifies as a Tomlin branch since I think he came in under Cowher.  Many fans were disappointed with his style, risk to Ben per se, and wanted him gone.  I guess Dungy can be added to the list but he's certainly not related to Tomlin.  

It appears Tomlin continues to fail in this regard unless I'm missing a name or two.  Munchek took a lateral move, supposedly for family reasons, but that's all I can recall.  What's amusing is this move, should it happen, has one of his branches going back to the college game as an assistant.  Looks like Mike is vertically challenged and getting his branches mixed up with roots.  Smile

From everything I’ve read this is true. Klemm has or will accept a Oline coach position at Oregon when the season concludes.

Funny, the Foxboro hoodie doesn’t  have much to show for his tree and he’s been around a lot longer. Mike Vrabel and Nick Saban (DC under Belichek Browns in the 90s) are the ones  I can think of that are  currently in a head coaching position. McDaniels and Weis had less than stellar results as head coaches.

But Tomlin, 15 years  and nada.  Good observation.
