By all accounts, the Pittsburgh Steelers want head coach Mike Tomlin to return in 2024. The Steelers made the playoffs this season and are set to take on the Bills in the Wild Card round on Sunday, bringing high hopes for the new year.
However, there are rumblings that Tomlin might decide to walk away following the playoffs, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
“I don’t know what Mike Tomlin is gonna do, but I can tell you there are people out there in the league who say that that’s potentially an option,” Schefter said. “That after the season, maybe he could walk away.”
After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 30-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, Mike Tomlin has extended his coaching career to a record 17 straight non-losing seasons. With this victory, Pittsburgh improved its record to 9-7, securing a winning campaign and marking the 14th time in Tomlin’s career.
Despite having a lengthy coaching career, Tomlin is still relatively young in the coaching game. It would be surprising to see him walking away after the 2023 season. The Steelers and Bills are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. on Sunday.
