Organizational stability is a Steelers hallmark, and the contract extensions the club gave to head coach Mike Tomlin and director of football operations Kevin Colbert in July ensures that for at least the next couple of seasons. Tomlin's contract now runs through 2012, and there is an option to extend the deal another season. Colbert, whose contract was to expire after this season, signed a five-year extension. "Our organization will be faced with many challenges in the coming season and beyond," said Colbert, who thanked chairman Dan Rooney and president Art Rooney, in a team-issued statement. "I look forward to working with the Rooneys and Coach Tomlin as we pursue our only acceptable goal — a Super Bowl title." The architect of the Steelers' last two Super Bowl champions, Colbert, 53, has drafted exceptionally well in Round One in his 11-year tenure. Tomlin, who enters his fourth season on the job, got his new contract with two years left on his old deal. He led the Steelers to victory in Super Bowl XLIII in just his second season on the job.
