Former Cowboys quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Troy Aikman isn’t ready to declare no-harm, no-foul regarding running back Ezekiel Elliott’s growing string of off-field incidents, no matter how the NFL rules on his potential punishment stemming from a domestic altercation last year.
“I truly appreciate this contract extension, and I want to thank Art Rooney II for his support as well as everyone within the organization,” Tomlin said. “My first 10 years in Pittsburgh have been an amazing experience for me and my family. I’m proud to call Pittsburgh home. My focus is on the upcoming season, and our goals remain the same as they always are — to bring a seventh Super Bowl championship back to our city.”
When the Steelers hired Tomlin in 2007 to replace Bill Cowher, he was the youngest coach in the NFL. He led the Steelers to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth in his first season and the Steelers have not had a losing record since. They’ve missed the playoffs just three times under Tomlin, who won a Super Bowl in 2008 and took the Steelers back to the Super Bowl in 2010.
Tomlin has led the Steelers to a 103-57 record in 10 seasons, reaching 100 career wins in the fewest games (157) in team history and the best start by a coach in team history.
“Mike continues to prove he is one of the top head coaches in the National Football League,” Steelers President Art Rooney II said. “We appreciate the leadership that Mike Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys has provided over the last 10 seasons, and we are confident and excited to have him continue to Cheap Islanders Jerseys lead our team as we focus on winning another championship.”
