The Pittsburgh Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin have agreed to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.
The extension will keep Tomlin in Pittsburgh through the 2024 season.
“I am pleased to announce we have extended Mike Tomlin’s contract through the 2024 season,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “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, 49, is entering his 15th season leading the Steelers. He is just the franchise’s third head coach since 1969.
Tomlin has lead Pittsburgh to seven AFC North titles and two Super Bowl appearances over his 14 seasons. He became the youngest head coach in NFL history to appear in and win a championship in Super Bowl XLIII.-
“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.”
Tomlin is also the third longest tenured coach in the NFL. His 145-78-1 (.650) record is the eleventh-best win percentage in league history. He has still never had a losing season in Pittsburgh.
That being said, the Steelers have not won a playoff game since 2016.
Tomlin’s last contract extension was a one-year deal that came just prior to the start of training camp in 2019. At the time, the extension locked him up through this season.
