Tomlin’s new contract will carry him through 2014. His previous contract, signed when the Steelers hired him in ’07, had one year and an option left. The five-year deal was worth an average of $2.5 million annually.
Tomlin’s record as coach is 31-17 in three regular seasons. He lost in his first playoff game in the 2007 season against the Jaguars at home, then the following year took the team to and won Super Bowl XLIII as they topped the Cardinals 27-23.
Now that Tomlin is done, next on the list will be football operations director Kevin Colbert. His status as of today seems a lot more clear since he is in the final year of his contract. Colbert is expected to receive a new contract as well.
