Continuity is a big thing in Pittsburgh.

That’s why news of a contract extension for Steelers coach Mike Tomlin almost feels anti-climactic.

The Steelers announced the move on their official website Tuesday, noting that the deal extended Tomlin through the 2016 season. There were two years left on his previous deal.

“We are pleased to announce that Mike Tomlin will remain with the Steelers for at least five more years,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said in the statement. “Mike is one of the top head coaches in the National Football League and we are thrilled he will continue to lead our team as we pursue another Super Bowl title.”

The 40-year-old Tomlin has an impressive resume in such a short time. He’s entering his sixth season as an NFL head coach, and already has a Super Bowl (from his second season) and a 55-25 regular season record.

That includes four playoff trips in five years, with two Super Bowl appearances.

“I am excited that I will continue to be the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers for years to come,” said Tomlin. “I am grateful to the Steelers organization for the opportunity I have been given over the past five years to work and live in this great city, and I am excited to continue to work to bring another championship to the Steelers and the city of Pittsburgh.”

Tomlin’s just the third coach the Steelers have put on the field since Chuck Noll took over in 1969, and by the looks of things, that kind of stability is going to last for years to come.

That's good news.  Isn't that when Cowher's contracts were generally extended - with two yrs remaining?

First the majority of the players were younger than me, then all of them.  Now some of the coaches are younger.

Oh death ...
