There was a lot of talk about Mike Tomlin’s future at the end of last season. He even walked out of a press conference when a reporter asked him about his future.

Now, those talks have been put to bed.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced a three-year contract extension with their long-time head coach. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Tomlin has been the Steelers head coach since 2007. He is now signed through the 2027 season.

“Mike Tomlin’s leadership and commitment to the Steelers have been pivotal to our success during his first 17 years as head coach,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “Extending his contract for three more years reflects our confidence in his ability to guide the team back to winning playoff games and championships, while continuing our tradition of success.”

Since the 1969 NFL season, the Steelers have had just three head coaches. The franchise was led by Chuck Noll (1969-1991) and Bill Cowher (1992-2006), before Tomlin (2007-Present).

Tomlin will be entering his 18th season with the team in 2024. The 52-year-old is 173-100-2 as the Steelers head coach.

Since Tomlin was hired, he has had the second-most wins as a head coach.

“I am appreciative for this contract extension and thankful for Art Rooney II for his support during my first 17 years in Pittsburgh,” Tomlin said. “We are continuing to work diligently to get back to where we belong – sustained playoff success with the ultimate goal of winning the franchise’s seventh Lombardi Trophy.

“I am very excited to get the 2024 season underway and provide our fans with a memorable year.”
