Steelers assistant Mike Munchak facing fine for hair-pulling

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak could be facing a “significant fine” for, get this, pulling Cincinnati Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s hair in last night’s 18-16 victory, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Munchak, the Steelers’ offensive line coach, drew a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct for his actions. In the game, both teams combined for 18 penalties for 221 yards, of which Pittsburgh were responsible for 142.

Needless to say, it wouldn’t at all be surprising to see Munchak fined. Even in the heat of a moment, a coach must be held to even higher standards than that of a player and even though these two teams have no love lost between each other, his actions were inexcusable.
