he's not a scumbag -- you don't have to be be an a**hole to want to do anything for your team to beat its only true rival and get into the playoffs if not just have a good upper hand in the race.
The Steelers are the only other team in the NFL I routinely watch and as I said before he really does watch the jumbotron on kick returns because it lets him see if players stay in their blocking lanes, look for holds, etc. Tomlin is a legit class act type of coach but you're kidding yourself if you think a coach won't do anything to help his team win.
But anybody who 100% doesn't question if it was an accident or not is being naive. You even see him turn his head and look just as Jones is getting to him and if he really wanted to get out of the way a person's reaction is not to step in front of an onrushing person then jump away. It would be to just jump the f**k out of the way.
That back of the endzone camera is absolutely damning evidence, he's getting fined and maybe even suspended for a game. This is the 3rd time this season that a coach has impeded the ref on the sideline and first that a coach set foot on the field during a potential scoring play.
