If you watched the Kentucky Wildcats versus the Ole Miss Rebels basketball game on Saturday, you probably caught the shot of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who was sitting court-side. Tomlin has been spotted at their basketball games before in the offseason and is real close reportedly to Joker Phillips, the Kentucky head football coach and defensive coordinator Rick Minter, who Tomlin coached under when he was at the University of Cincinnati. Tomlin was photographed with the Kentucky basketball team and their head coach John Calipari following their shoot around and Calipari posted it to Twitter. Also making the trip to Kentucky were Randy Fichtner, the Steelers quarterbacks coach and Scottie Montgomery, the wide receivers coach.

Tomlin seemed none too excited about the camera man interrupting his enjoyment of the game as he asked him, “You got enough, bro? You got enough? I\’m trying to watch the game”. The camera man is heard saying “We\’re on…” and followed that up by saying “I\’m moving” as they cut back to the action in the game. Tomlin is likely making his way out to Indianapolis as the NFL combine starts next week. If you are curious if there are any players that Tomlin might have been there checking up on, outside linebacker Danny Trevathan and strong safety Winston Guy are the two highest rated Kentucky football players that could get a look late in the draft by teams.
