Steelers Extend Tomlin’s Contract, Make the Right Move

As all of Steelers Nation now knows, the Pittsburgh Steelers have ended any speculation as the Rooney’s satisfaction with Mike Tomlin’s performance, by extending his contract for another three years.

Details of the new agreement were not available in the story broken by the Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette, but Tomlin’s previous deal had two years remaining on it, and his extension is said to be for three years.

As the headline suggests, Steel Curtain Rising favors the move, and will have more to say about it as time allows in the coming days. (In fact, I had been writing a piece explaining why they should renew Tomlin’s contract, but Art Rooney II beat me to the punch – now I’ll have to adapt that.)
