Mike Tomlin Signs Three-Year Extension To Remain Steelers Head Coach

Mike Tomlin has signed a contract three-year extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers that will keep him under contract until the 2027 season.

Tomlin, who’s entering his 18th season with the Steelers, is the longest-tenured coach in the NFL. Before the new agreement, Tomlin was entering the final year of a three-year extension signed in 2021.

“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 in a statement. “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.”

Tomlin, who was hired in 2007, is only the third Steelers head coach since 1969. He’s never had a losing season, and his 173 regular-season wins are second in the franchise history behind Chuck Noll’s 193. If Tomlin continues his streak of non-losing seasons through the three-year extension, he’ll surpass Noll as the organization’s winningest head coach.
