    Tomlin extended through 2016!

    Considering that he had 2 more years on his current contract, I am hoping that frees up enough money to get Wallace in on time.

    Either way, this is a big deal.

    Steelers sign Tomlin to three-year extension

    July 24, 2012
    By Ed Bouchette / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



    Head coach Mike Tomlin watches rookie tight end David Paulson in a blocking drill during the 2012 OTA sessions.

    The Steelers today announced they have extended coach Mike Tomlin's contract for three years, through the 2016 season.

    Tomlin, hired in 2007 after Bill Cowher resigned, was working on his second contract with the Steelers that went through an option year of 2013.

    "We are pleased to announce that Mike Tomlin will remain with the Steelers for at least five more years," said Steelers' President Art Rooney II in the press release "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."

    Tomlin, 40, has a 55-25 record in six regular seasons, and his teams have won two AFC championships and one Super Bowl.

    "I am excited that I will continue to be the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers for years to come," Tomlin said in the team's press release. "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."

    The Steelers issued no financial terms of the deal.

    Salaries for coaches are not counted toward the salary cap.

    Yeah...Tomlin's had nothing whatsoever to do with the Steelers 2 Super Bowl appearances in the last 4 years...I'm sure that you can do a better job.
