PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers and coach Mike Tomlin have agreed to a contract extension that will keep him with the team through 2018.
Financial terms of the deal announced Thursday were not disclosed. Tomlin is 82-46 with Pittsburgh since replacing Bill Cowher following the 2006 season. The Steelers have won one Super Bowl and appeared in another under Tomlin and are coming off an 11-5 mark and an AFC North title in 2014.
Steelers President Art Rooney II called Tomlin ''one of the top coaches'' in the NFL. Tomlin calls his time with the Steelers a ''wonderful experience.''
