Steelers football coach Mike Tomlin will leave the team at the end of the season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that they have accepted an offer from the Philadelphia Eagles to relocate their home games from the Wells Fargo Center to Heinz Field in downtown Pittsburgh.
Tomlin had not announced his departure, but he did confirm to reporters in New York City on Monday that the team is in discussions with an Eagles team that has already agreed to move to the facility.
Tomlins last season was the longest in franchise history.
The team has averaged 27,817 fans per home game, and the team’s attendance record was 31,732 last season.
“Mike Tomlin has been a part of our team since day one,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement.
“His leadership and leadership in building the franchise will be missed.”
