Pittsburgh, Pa.

(AP) With owner Art Rooney II and coach Mike Tomlin leading the Pittsburgh Steelers to a second straight Super Bowl appearance, they’re looking to expand their base of fans and improve their fan base as well.

The Steelers signed former 49ers general manager Trent Baalke as their new general manager on Monday.

He replaces longtime coach Mike Pettine, who is expected to stay on through the 2020 season.

Tomlin and Baalke both had their names on the NFL’s initial list of candidates to replace Goodell, who retired after the 2017 season.

But both had been under pressure from fans and players, with both teams recently announcing that they would be staying in their respective divisions during the off-season.

The Steelers are expected to unveil their next general manager at a news conference Tuesday at 3 p.m.

ET.

The team announced in June that it would be selling the naming rights to Heinz Field to private equity firm Bain Capital, who also owns the New York Mets.
