Rooney on Tomlin extension: We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers will make no more coaching changes, but one of them on staff next season likely will assist Mike Tomlin in the areas of challenging officials’ calls and in clock management.

Those were a few of the many topics touched on and statements made by Steelers president Art Rooney II in his annual postseason review Wednesday afternoon with seven beat reporters covering the team.

And while he also said the team wants to extend the contract of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, he would not commit to doing so with Tomlin. The coach has two years left on his deal, traditionally the time the Steelers have entered talks for an extension.

“Those are things we’ll get to sort of later in the offseason,’’ Rooney said of a new deal for his coach, “so we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
