Mike Tomlin’s criticism of the officiating reportedly has made him $25,000 lighter in the wallet, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

USA Today and the NFL Network, citing sources, reported Wednesday afternoon that Tomlin was fined for the comments he made Sunday after the Steelers’ 41-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Tomlin, a member of the league’s competition committee, said on Tuesday that he did not expect to receive a fine.

It is the second known fine that Tomlin received in his 12-year tenure with the Steelers. He was docked $100,000 for stepping onto the field during a kickoff return in a 2013 game at Baltimore.

Tomlin was critical of the officiating when he was asked about two hands-to-the-face penalties that were called against outside linebacker Bud Dupree. Tomlin said he had no problem with those calls, before adding, “Some of the other stuff is a joke. We got to get better as a National Football League. Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs.
