Steelers Extend Coach Tomlin Another Three Years and Patrick Marleau Passes Gordie Howe's Record for Most Games Played
The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed head coach Mike Tomlin to a three-year contract extension running through the 2024 season, according to a report from the Associated Press this morning. In his 14 years with the Steelers, Tomlin is 145-78-1, has brought the team to the playoffs nine times, and won one Super Bowl. Tomlin commented in a statement on the news:
"I am extremely grateful for this contract extension and want to thank Art Rooney II and everyone in the organization for the support in my first 14 seasons. We have a goal of winning the organization's seventh Super Bowl championship, and I couldn't be more enthusiastic about this upcoming season."
NHL.com reports that San Jose Sharks forward Patrick Marleau has passed Gordie Howe for most NHL games played with 1,768, as of last night's game against the Vegas Golden Knights. Marleau's friend and former teammate Joe Thornton, who now plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs, is is second among active players, sixth in NHL history, and 99 games behind Marleau with 1,669 regular-season games. Thornton commented:
"Even with playing with Patty all those years, it's still amazing to think about what he's doing. It's one of those things that when you hear about the games played by Gordie Howe, you think it's one of those things that's untouchable. He was part of the League for so long. You wouldn't have dreamed of anybody touching that milestone. So when you're beating one of Mr. Hockey's records, it's impressive."
