No franchise has more impeccable taste in choosing head coaches than the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the team has ensured its current leader won't go anywhere.
Instant Debate: Modern-day dynasty?
"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 a statement issued by the team. "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."
No franchise has handled the transition of change better than the Steelers. Chuck Noll won four Super Bowls over 22 seasons (1969-1991) before giving way to Cowher, who brought another title in his 15 seasons (1992-2006). Tomlin has maintained that sense of stability in the organization while keeping it a perennial title contender. An extension well deserved.
