Steelers extend head coach Mike Tomlin


The Pittsburgh Steelers have ended at least one contract distraction before training camp starts. The team and coach Mike Tomlin agreed to an extension Tuesday that will keep him on the sideline through at least 2016. Financial terms were not disclosed. Tomlin’s previous deal expired at the end of the 2013 season. The 40-year-old Tomlin, a surprise choice to replace Bill Cowher following the 2006 season, is 55-25 with the Steelers, winning three AFC North titles, two AFC championships and the 2009 Super Bowl. The Steelers begin camp today and will likely do it without wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has yet to sign his one-year tender.
