no real suprise here. the man has earned it and the steelers are smart enough to lock him up. to get him for what bill wanted would probably be a bargain.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been negotiating terms of a contract extension that would keep him with the franchise beyond the two years that remain on his current deal, according to two sources close to the situation.

Terms of a potential deal were not disclosed and negotiations likely won’t be finalized until after the 2009 season, but Pittsburgh is expected to keep the Super Bowl-winning coach on staff for a long time.


“Even if it doesn’t get announced until after the season, both sides are very comfortable with the situation,” a Steelers source said. “I think Mike feels very comfortable about what the Steelers are going to do for him. He’s not out there hanging, not sure what’s going to happen.”

And it had to be won in the fourth quarter at that!

And it couldn't be run by running the ball!

Will Tomlin get a contract extension?
Steelers Q&A with Ed Bouchette

Saturday, September 12, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09255/997624-66.stm

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has three years remaining on his contract.

Q: The Steelers are well known for not negotiating player contracts once the season begins. How about the coaches? I've heard the front office is negotiating an extension for coach Mike Tomlin now.

David Koh, Pullman, Wa.

BOUCHETTE: I wrote a few weeks ago that the Steelers are NOT negotiating a contract extension for Mike Tomlin and will not until at least the end of the season. Traditionally, the Steelers negotiate a contract extension for their coach when he has two years left on his contract. Tomlin has three left: two, plus an option. Also, once the regular season starts, the Steelers do not negotiate either with their players or coaches as a matter of policy.

The Steelers organization will lock Tomlin up to a new deal, but not until the end of the season regardless of it's outcome!

Fire Tomlin - hire Grimm
Hire a RB coach as OC
Get rid of all WR's and put fatback FB's in their place
Trade Ben for a QB that doesn't hold the ball so long

And lose a bunch of games...and stay OUT of the playoffs... so we get a higher draft number next year.

Then, AND ONLY THEN, will we be able to "fix" this Sh*tty team and WIN some games!

NFL from the sidelines
http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot.com/
After hobnobbing around the NFL in the press boxes and sidelines, sports reporter Dale Lolley will let you know the insider scoop.


Steelers talking with Tomlin
The Steelers are reportedly talking about a contract extension with head coach Mike Tomlin.

That, in itself, is not a surprise. Tomln's contract runs through the 2010 season, so getting him a new deal and avoiding a similar issue to the one that happened with Bill Cowher is something the team should be looking to avoid.

But where do you start with the money?

Cowher is reportedly looking for $10 million per season to get back onto the sideline.


That would obviously be on the high end of the wage scale.

Of current coaches, Tennessee's Jeff Fisher, the league's longest-tenured coach, makes $5.5 million per season. Lovie Smith is getting the same salary to coach the Bears, while Bill Belichick is costing New England $5 million per season.

Tomlin currently makes $2.5 million per season, so it only makes sense that he'll be asking to move into the $5-million club.

Of course the team will likely argue that he hasn't been around as long as those three aforementioned coaches.
