The Steelers may not be finished losing assistants, but it appears they want to add beyond the number of departing coaches.
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wants to add to his staff, bringing another full-time assistant beyond the staff he carried last year.
It’s unclear what the position would be, but Tomlin clearly needs to work on many things after a tumultuous year.
He already let outside linebackers coach Joey Porter and running backs coach James Saxon go, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak is a finalist for the Broncos head coaching job.
Adding numbers alone won’t solve the problems the Steelers had last year, but the fact Tomlin’s considering structural changes is a sign that he realizes he needs to adapt himself.
