Mike Tomlin has been the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2007.

He holds the NFL record for most consecutive non-losing seasons to begin his coaching career, 17 straight seasons.

Tomlin has won one Super Bowl and made two Super Bowl appearances.

However, the playoffs have not been kind to Tomlin recently.

The Steelers have not won a playoff game since 2016.

It feels like Tomlin is on the hot seat with the fans but not with the organization.

The Steelers proved their loyalty and trust as they gave Tomlin a three-year contract extension and have him locked up through 2027.

We discuss Tomlin’s contract extension and if the Steelers were correct in extending Tomlin.

Tomlin Signs A Contract Extension With Steelers

Tomlin and the Steelers agreed to a three-year contract extension.

This will keep him as the head coach through 2027.

Tomlin is one of the most respected head coaches in the league and the Steelers are loyal to him.

Pittsburgh has made a lot of changes during the offseason but Tomlin will remain with the team for the foreseeable future.

Did The Steelers Make The Right Move By Extending Tomlin?

Mike Tomlin has a lot of accolades.

He has won a Super Bowl and holds the NFL record for most consecutive non-losing seasons to begin his coaching career, 17 straight seasons.

Players on the Steelers and around the league adore Tomlin and sing his praise.

However, some of the Steeler fan base sees Tomlin differently.

Pittsburgh has not won a playoff game since 2016 and a lot of the blame is put on Tomlin.

The culture of the Steelers feels different and the winning attitude does not appear to be there as it once was.

While the organization remains loyal to Tomlin, the fan base has changed their attitude.

This was not a wise move for the Steelers to do.

Tomlin has not won a playoff game since 2016 and if the Steelers once again fail to do so this upcoming season, the fans will want a change.

The fan base will not be happy that the Steelers are sticking with Tomlin despite the lack of results in the postseason.

Pittsburgh should have waited till after the year to see if they have any playoff success before extending Tomlin.
