The Steelers organization does not like to churn through coaches. Since 1969, Pittsburgh has employed three head coaches (Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin), and on Tuesday, the Steelers announced the current one isn't going anywhere for a while.
"We are pleased to announce that Mike Tomlin will remain with the Steelers for at least five more years," Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement. "Mike is one of the top head coaches in the National Football League and we are thrilled he will continue to lead our team as we pursue another Super Bowl title."
The current three-year extension means Tomlin is locked up through the 2016 season. And for a guy who's gone 55-25 in his first six years in the organization with a Super Bowl title (and a Super Bowl runner-up) to his credit, that's probably a good move for the Steelers.
