Mike Tomlin was named the 16th head coach in Pittsburgh Steelers history on January 22, 2007. Hired at the age of 34, Tomlin became only the third head coach hired by the Steelers since 1969.
In his first 11 seasons, Tomlin has accomplished many things that have never been done in the team’s storied history. His 116-60 regular-season record (.659) is the best start in franchise history. He reached 100 career wins in the fewest games (157) in team history. Tomlin became the eighth head coach in NFL history to reach 100 regular-season wins in their first 10 seasons. His 103 regular-season wins are tied for the fourth-most wins by an NFL head coach in their first 10 seasons as a head coach.
