The Pittsburgh Steelers signed coach Mike Tomlin to a three-year contract extension, which runs through the 2024 season.
Tomlin, 49, has coached the Steelers since 2007 and has never had a losing season.
“I am pleased to announce we have extended Mike Tomlin’s contract through the 2024 season,” said team president Art Rooney II in a statement announcing the deal on Tuesday.
“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 led the Steelers to a Super Bowl title in his second season, making him the youngest head coach (36) to win a Super Bowl. The Steelers went back to the Super Bowl after the 2010 season, but lost.
“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 has posted a 145-78-1 regular-season record in his 14 years in Pittsburgh, going 8-8 in the playoffs.
His .640 overall winning percentage is tops in Steelers history.
Only Bill Belichick, who joined the New England Patriots in 2000, and Sean Payton, who has coached the New Orleans Saints since 2006, have a longer tenure with their current team.
