The Pittsburgh Steelers have locked up coach Mike Tomlin with a three-year contract extension, according to a tweet by NFL Network reporter Albert Breer.

Tomlin took the Steelers job in 2007 after coach Bill Cowher retired following the team's victory in Super Bowl XL over the Seattle Seahawks. In the five seasons that Tomlin has been with the team, he has gone 55-25 in the regular season and 5-3 in the postseason, including a victory in Super Bowl XLIII. The team has only missed the playoffs once under Tomlin in 2009.

The Steelers continue to be a model of consistency in the NFL, with only three head coaches since Chuck Noll took over the team in 1969. With any luck, the Steelers won't be worrying about a new head coach for years to come.
