Last week, the Steelers parted ways with offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. To the extent that the making of only one change would prompt anyone to believe that it would be the only change, prompt again.
In an end-of-season session with a trio of reporters, Steelers owner Art Rooney II was asked about other potential coaching changes. Rooney declined comment.
“Mike [Tomlin] is still going through the process,” Rooney said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“The process” could in theory result in offensive coordinator Todd Haley being let go. “The process” could in theory result in defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who said last month twice in the same media session that whether he returns will be up to someone else, being let go.
Or, like the team did two years ago with Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, “retired.”
Regardless, for now it’s safe to say only that neither LeBeau is completely safe for 2014.
UPDATE 3:14 p.m. ET: Yes, we realize multiple reports have indicated that both men are safe for next season. Rooney could have said that. He didn’t.
