Mike Tomlin & John Harbaugh Have Tense Moment During Postgame Handshake

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh had an interesting postgame handshake following the Steelers 23-20 win that will likely get a lot of run in the media this week.

Following the game winning kick by Shaun Suisham the cameras showed Harbaugh approaching Tomlin at midfield for the customary exchange between head coaches. As the two got closer to one another, Harbaugh said, “Congratulations” to Tomlin, who appeared to already be looking toward Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco as the two shook hands.

Tomlin appeared to be quickly heading off when Harbaugh yelled out Tomlin to get his attention while still having hold of his hand. The two came back together quickly and Harbaugh said something else to Tomlin to which he replied, “Thank you, good job” before heading back off in the opposite direction.

As Tomlin went off Harbaugh appeared to be giving the Steelers head coach a mad stare.

The Harbaugh family is certainly getting a reputation for have interesting postgame handshakes, aren\’t they?
