Pittsburgh Steelers sign coach Mike Tomlin to three-year extension

The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that coach Mike Tomlin was signed to a three-year extension, keeping him under contract through the 2024 NFL season.

Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a news release: “Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we work to win another championship.”

Tomlin spent the 2006 season as defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings. He had no head coaching experience when he was hired in 2007 to coach the Steelers the next off-season. He is 145-78-1 in 14 seasons as Steelers coach, and won a Super Bowl in 2009. He is 8-8 in 16 playoff appearances. “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,” Tomlin said.
