Carson Palmer Accidentally Leaks That Mike Tomlin Is A Candidate For USC HC Job If “He Wants Out”

Carson Palmer was a guest on Monday’s Dan Patrick Show and accidentally leaked that Mike Tomlin is a candidate for USC’s vacant head coaching job if “he wants out” of Pittsburgh.

Palmer, who’s a Trojan legend, listed off a few potential names, including Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. What Palmer didn’t know, which Patrick zeroed in on, was that Mike Tomlin being floated by someone with the level of USC connections that Palmer obviously has would be a pretty big deal.

Tomlin has been the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2008.
