The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed head coach Mike Tomlin to a three-year extension, the team announced on its official website and social media accounts Monday (June 10).

The extension will keep Tomlin, 52, who has served as the Steelers' head coach since 2007 and has never had a losing season during his tenure, in the fold through at least 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," said Steelers President Art Rooney II. "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."

"I am appreciative for this contract extension and thankful for Art Rooney II for his support during my first 17 years in Pittsburgh," said Tomlin. "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."

Tomlin reportedly told his players that rumors of a potential departure were untrue and he planned to continue coaching the team in 2024 during a private meeting in January. The 52-year-old has a career regular season record of 173-100-2 and a postseason record of 8-10 in 17 seasons with the Steelers.
