A day after getting their first-round pick, David DeCastro, under contract, the Steelers turned their attention to head coach Mike Tomlin.
On Tuesday, the team signed Tomlin to a three-year contract extension, keeping the charismatic coach in Pittsburgh through 2016.
This was a move most saw coming and one that should surprise nobody.
Since succeeding Bill Cowher in 2007, Tomlin has established himself as an elite coach, leading the Steelers to four AFC North crowns, two Super Bowl titles, and a dazzling overall record of 55-25.
Still only 40-years-old, Tomlin figures to carry out Cowher-like longevity, and will go down as one of the best hires in the organization's illustrious history.
