Mike Tomlin’s record with Steelers: Winning seasons add up for NFL’s third-longest tenured coach

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin secured his 15th straight winning season as head coach this year after the Steelers finished the 2021-22 season with a 9-7-1 record.

Tomlin was previously tied with former Browns coach Marty Schottenheimer with 14 straight winning seasons. Tomlin now has the record for the longest winning season streak for a coach to start out their NFL coaching career. This means in every single year that Tomlin has coached in the NFL, he’s finished with a winning record. Not many coaches can say that.

Under Tomlin, the Steelers have won one Super Bowl (2008) and made nine playoff appearances, including this season.

Mike Tomlin record with Steelers

Tomlin took over the Steelers head coaching role in 2007, which was his first year in the head coach position. He was 34 years old when he took on the role. Since then, Tomlin has established a 154-85-2 record in 15 years with the Steelers.

Tomlin’s best record with the Steelers came in 2017 when they went 13-3. The Steelers earned a first round bye in the playoffs that year, but lost in the divisional round. The Steelers had three split even records under Tomlin, in 2012, 2013 and 2019. Those three years resulted in 8-8 records, which do not count as losing records.

Here’s a breakdown of every single season record Tomlin has had while coaching in the NFL.
