Head coach Mike Tomlin signs three-year extension with Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed head coach Mike Tomlin to a three-year extension, ensuring that he will remain with the team at least through the 2024 season.

Tomlin is heading into his 15th season as the Steelers' head coach, as he was hired by the team in 2007 following the retirement of Bill Cowher. The Steelers have been the model of consistency under Tomlin's tenure, as the team has not had a losing season with him as head coach. 

Over 14 years, Tomlin has compiled a 145-78-1 record and has taken the Steelers to the postseason nine times, including last season. In 2008, he led the franchise to its sixth Super Bowl win, a number which has only been matched by the New England Patriots. Tomlin was the youngest head coach in NFL history to win a Super Bowl, as he was only 36 years old.

"I am extremely grateful for this contract extension and want to thank Art Rooney II and everyone in the organization for the support in my first 14 seasons," said Tomlin. "We have a goal of winning the organization's seventh Super Bowl championship, and I couldn't be more enthusiastic about this upcoming season."
