Mike Tomlin ’95 became the youngest head coach ever to lead a National Football League team to Super Bowl victory tonight when his Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals 27 to 23 at Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay, Fla.

Tomlin has visited the College of William and Mary’s campus multiple times in the last year, including serving as the Class of 2008 commencement speaker and to help dedicate the new Jimmye Laycock Football Center.

Addressing the Class of 2008 in May, Tomlin encouraged the graduates to always uphold proper conduct.

“Life is more than the scoreboard, it’s how you play,” he said. “We have to exhibit the honor, the integrity, the class that’s indicative of a William and Mary alum.”

Tomlin studied sociology at the College.
