Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has been rewarded for his efforts this season by being named the 2008 Motorola NFL Coach of the Year.

"It's a tremendous honour," said Tomlin, who guided the Steelers to the Super Bowl in his second season at the helm.

Pittsburgh recorded a 12-4 record in the regular season under Tomlin and captured the AFC North Division title for the second straight year. The 36- year-old Tomlin will be the youngest head coach to appear in the big game when the Steelers take on the Arizona Cardinals Sunday in Super Bowl XLIII.

Other coaches who received recognition were Tom Coughlin of the Giants, Jeff Fisher of Tennessee, John Harbaugh of the Ravens, Atlanta's Mike Smith and Miami's Tony Sparano.
