Coach Makes Racey Email Blunder
(KDKA) PITTSBURGH Veteran Steelers Line Coach Larry Zierlein made a computer age goof.

He inadvertently sent out an email containing pornographic material to some unintended recipients, including names listed on the NFL's general managers email distribution list, their secretaries and Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The story broke on the Web site ProFootballTalk.com, which reports Zierlein forwarded the email after her received it from Doug Whaley, the Steelers' personnel coordinator who got it from an outside source, according to our news partners at the Post-Gazette.

Zierlein was unsuccessful in trying to recall the message.

"When you write an email, you have to write it as if everybody's going to see it, as if it's like front page on the newspaper," Jay Armstrong, owner of Computer House Call, said.

His firm specializes in computer training and repair.

The PG reports the Steelers confirmed one of their employees was involved in sending the inappropriate email against both club and league policy.

The PG also quotes a Steelers source as saying the Steelers are not expected to take disciplinary action against the coach.

Im sure it was more than blushing, more like complete embarrassment for a guy who recently joined the organization.

Dan Rooney is not happy that the Steelers' organization and the words 'pornographic video' have been linked, and he may do something about it.

'I'm terribly disappointed,' Rooney said yesterday after he arrived back at the team's headquarters from the spring NFL meeting in Nashville, Tenn. 'It's not us; it's not our culture.'

Offensive line coach Larry Zierlein, hired in January, forwarded an e-mail Friday that he received from Doug Whaley, the Steelers' 10th-year pro personnel coordinator, that contained a video attachment that the Steelers admitted was 'inappropriate.' Zierlein, by mistake, sent it league-wide, and ProFootballTalk.com reported it on its Web site.

Rooney, the Steelers' chairman, said he will 'look into it.' An NFL spokesman has said it is a club matter. Rooney said he is considering some sort of discipline for his two employees.
