Mike Tomlin: 'My actions were embarrassing'

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin admits that he embarrassed himself by impeding Jacoby Jones in his side's defeat to the Baltimore Ravens.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has admitted that his actions in his side's defeat to the Baltimore Ravens were "embarrassing".

Tomlin has come under major scrutiny after appearing to step on the field to impede Jacoby Jones, who was close to returning a punt for a touchdown but the coach's foot caused him to change direction and he was brought down.

He told reporters: "My actions on that play are embarrassing. I take full responsibility for my actions. I understand there are repercussions that come with a blunder of that nature.

"With my position comes the charge of preserving and protecting the integrity of football. That play jeopardized the integrity of the NFL from a competition standpoint. That's a mistake on my part."

Tomlin has yet to be punished by the NFL as they are continuing to review the play.
