In a curious move coming just two weeks before the start of the regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have made a change to their coaching staff.
The Steelers have parted ways with special teams coordinator Al Everest, according to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports.
There’s no word yet on what transpired to result in Everest being sent packing, but suffice to say that this is highly unusual: NFL coaching staff personnel changes hardly ever happen in the middle of the preseason.
Everest was hired in January of 2010, just days after he was fired by the 49ers, and was heading into his third season as the special teams coordinator for the Steelers. This would have been his 16th season as a special teams coordinator in the NFL.
