Fichtner and QB Ben Roethlisberger have a good relationship considering Roethlisberger asked for Fichtner to be removed from the coaches booth and placed on the sidelines for games. Head coach Mike Tomlin supported the idea and Fichtner's relationship with Roethlisberger is likely a big reason for the hire.
