Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coaches Joey Porter and Mike Munchak were fined $10,000 each for their actions during the teams’ game against the Bengals last Saturday, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

During the game, Munchak received a 15-yard penalty after he appeared to grab the hair of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson when he ran onto the Steelers sideline at the end of a play.

Porter illegally stepped onto the field during the game when wide receiver Antonio Brown was hurt by a helmet-to-helmet hit by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Burfict was suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season for “repeated violations of safety-related playing rules.”

Rapoport also reported that Bengals cornerback Adam Jones has been fined $28,940 for unsportsmanlike conduct after he made contact with a game official. Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko was fined $8,681 for unnecessary roughness.
