Pittsburgh Steelers Sign Coach Mike Tomlin for Three More Years
Tomlin is entering his 15th season as head coach.
The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Tuesday that it had come to terms on a three-year contract extension with head coach Mike Tomlin.
“Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement released by the team, “and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we work to win another championship.”
The upcoming season will be Tomlin’s 15th with the team, tying him with predecessor Bill Cower for the second-longest tenure as head coach behind Chuck Noll. Tomlin is currently the third longest-tenured head coach in the NFL. The extension continues his ties with the team through the 2024 season.
“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 in the team-issued statement. “We have a goal of winning the organization’s seventh Super Bowl championship, and I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this upcoming season.”
