(Pittsburgh) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers and coach Mike Tomlin have agreed to a contract extension that will keep him with the team through 2018.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Steelers have won one Super Bowl and appeared in another under Tomlin and are coming off an 11-5 mark and an AFC North title in 2014.

Steelers President Art Rooney II called Tomlin "one of the top coaches'' in the NFL.

Tomlin says his time with the Steelers has been a "wonderful experience.''

The Steelers report for training camp at Saint Vincent College tomorrow and open the preseason in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio on August 9th.
