While many will bring up the topic of Ben Roethlisberger being one of the best quarterbacks ever if he wins another Super Bowl, the same argument could be made about Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.

The 38-year old already has one Super Bowl victory under his belt and is three years younger than Brett Favre.

Check out this list of multiple Super Bowl appearances by coaches:

 

Appearances
Coach                                               
Record       
6 Don Shula 2-4
5 Tom Landry 2-3
4 Bud Grant 0-4
  Chuck Noll 4-0
  Joe Gibbs 3-1
  Marv Levy 0-4
  Dan Reeves 0-4
  Bill Belichick 3-1
3 Bill Walsh 3-0
  Bill Parcells 2-1
  Mike Holmgren 1-2

 

Is it safe to assume that Tomlin has another 20 years of coaching in him? Getting his start so young, could he be on the verge of being the next Landry, Shula, Noll, or Gibbs?

I'm not completely oblivious to the fact that more goes into making a Super Bowl than being a great coach. Owners and GMs are very important. Just ask the Cowboys. Having a great roster plays into it as well. But I think it's safe to assume that Tomlin is approaching great company.
