As other NFL teams rifle through head coaches, the Pittsburgh Steelers once again seem very happy with what they have. The team announced this afternoon that it has inked head coach Mike Tomlin to a three year extension of his current contract. With the extension, Tomlin is attached to the Steelers organization until 2016.

Tomlin has yet to have a losing season at the helm of the Steelers since taking over after the retirement of Bill Cowher in 2007. In five seasons, Tomlin has amassed a 55-25 record with the Steelers, including three AFC North championships, two AFC championships, and one Super Bowl win. The Steelers have made the playoffs in four out of the five seasons Tomlin has been in charge.
