Steelers extend Mike Tomlin

The Pittsburgh Steelers have extended head coach Mike Tomlin's contract through the 2021 season, the club announced on Thursday. His contract was set to expire after the 2020 campaign.

“I am pleased to announce we have extended Mike Tomlin’s contract through the 2021 season,” Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement. “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 pursue our goal of winning another championship.”

Tomlin is 125-66-1 in 12 seasons leading the club, a run that includes one Super Bowl victory and two AFC championships. Tomlin remains the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl in NFL history, leading the Steelers to the mountaintop when he was just 36 years old.

Still a young coach at 47, the extension will keep him in black and gold for 15 seasons. Pittsburgh has employed just three head coaches since 1969.
