PITTSBURGH — Mike Tomlin just continues to make history. With the Steelers defeating the Bears 29-27, Tomlin set yet another landmark statistic.
In only his fifteenth season, Tomlin has reached 150 wins in 232 games, which is the fourth-fastest all-time behind Don Shula, George Halas, and Curly Lambeau. That is not a small feat in its own right. Tomlin has never had a losing season up to this point in his coaching career.
Not only is he the fourth-fastest to reach 150 wins and only the twentieth coach to reach the mark proper period, but Tomlin also moves into second place for most wins in Steelers franchise history. He passed Hall of Fame Coach Bill Cowher, who won 149 games over his coaching tenure in Pittsburgh before retiring after the 2006 season.
Tomlin himself is building quite the Hall of Fame resume in only fifteen seasons coaching the Steelers. He already has a Super Bowl win and two appearances on his steading blooming, yet impressive resume.
