Who is the youngest African American Coach to Win a Super Bowl?

Tony Dungy won Super Bowl XII, in 1979 with the Steelers at the age of 24 as a player. Later he went on to coach with Steelers' Head Coach, Chuch Noll as a Defensive Backs coordinator, one year after the Steelers won Super Bowl XIV, but did not win a Super Bowl as a coach until he, as Head Coach of the Indianapolis Colts, led them to a victory in Super Bowl XLI, in 2007 (at the age of 52). This victory, at the time, did make Dungy the youngest and first African-American to win a Super Bowl, but this statistic would not stand for long. Dungy will always be the first African-American coach to win a Super Bowl.In 2009, Mike Tomlin, led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a Superbowl XLIII victory at the age of 36 - making him not only the youngest African-American Head Coach to win a Super Bowl, but also the youngest Head Coach (of any ethnicity) to win in Super-bowl history thus far. In only his second year of Head-Coaching, his team beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23, thus replacing Dungy as the youngest African-American coach to have that honor.
