PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed head coach Mike Tomlin to a one-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday as players began arriving for training camp in Latrobe.

Tomlin, 47, will now be with the team through at least the 2021 season with the extension, financial terms of which have not been released.

“Mike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we pursue our goal of winning another championship,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said in a statement.

Tomlin is entering his 13th season as head coach of the Steelers. He has led the team to the playoffs eight times and to six AFC North titles, as well as two trips to the Super Bowl.

When the Steelers won Super Bowl XLIII, Tomlin became the youngest head coach in NFL history to both coach in and win a Super Bowl.

“I am very appreciative of this contract extension and opportunity and want to thank Art Rooney II and everyone in the organization for the support in my first 12 seasons,” Tomlin said in a statement. “We have a goal of winning the organization’s seventh Super Bowl championship, and I couldn’t be more excited about this upcoming season.”
