The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed coach Mike Tomlin to a three-year extension, the team announced Monday.

Tomlin, 52, said in January that he expected to get an extension this offseason.

His extension puts him under contract through the 2027 season.

The Steelers haven’t had a losing season in his 17 years as the team’s head coach, an NFL record for the start of a coach’s career, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He has a 173-100-2 regular-season record and is 8-10 in the postseason as Pittsburgh’s coach.

The Steelers have an active streak of 20 straight non-losing seasons and can tie the Dallas Cowboys (1965-85) for the NFL record of most consecutive seasons with another such season in 2024.

The Steelers have had only three head coaches since 1969 — Hall of Famer Chuck Noll (1969-91), Hall of Famer Bill Cowher (1992-2006) and Tomlin (2007-active), easily the fewest number of different head coaches of any team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. All three won the Super Bowl.
