Report: Steelers To Hire New Offensive Line Coach Before Naming New Offensive Coordinator

The Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to name their new offensive coordinator as of Wednesday afternoon despite multiple reports this weekend stating that the team will promote quarterbacks coach Matt Canada to the position. While Canada still seems like the favorite to succeed Randy Fichtner following his contract not being renewed this offseason, the team isn’t likely to announce who their new offensive coordinator will be until a new offensive line coach has been hired, according to a Wednesday report.

Delay in naming Matt Canada (or someone) as offensive coordinator is because Mike Tomlin wants to hire an offensive line coach first, per sources.
