The Steelers officially announced that they have extended the Mike Tomlin for two years, plus an additional year that the team can pick up at its discretion. Both ESPN.com and the Tribune Review announced the signing.
Curiously the Post-Gazette had not posted anything on its website as of as of 11:52 Eastern time on Friday the 24. The Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette had been the first reporter to break the news two weeks ago, however.
Assuming the team picks up the final option year, Tomlin will be bound to the team through the 2013 season. Financial terms of the deal were not announced.
