Mike Tomlin accepts NFL fine

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says that he accepts the NFL's decision to fine him.

Mike Tomlin has said that he has accepted the NFL's decision to fine him $100,000 (£61,000) for interfering from the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline.

Tomlin appeared to deliberately step on the field while Baltimore Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones had the ball in the team's 22-20 win.

The head coach said: "As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologise for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organisation.

"I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins."

The league is also considering a Draft penalty for the team next year.
