It has long been known the Steelers have one of the smallest coaching staffs in the NFL. Last season they tied with the Las Vegas Raiders with 18 total coaches on staff. Already this offseason the team has lost three coaches who were on staff for the 2022 season.
Assistant WR coach Blaine Stewart went to West Virginia University, defensive assistant/linebacker coach Brian Flores was hired as the Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator, and long-time assistant coach John Mitchell decided to call it a career.
That left the Steelers with 15 total coaches, this before they hired Aaron Curry as their linebackers coach.
