The Steelers are continuing to interview candidates for their receivers coach opening, including one with NFL experience.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers interviewed longtime NFL wideout Jerricho Cotchery last week.

Cotchery spent three of his 12 NFL seasons with the Steelers, and had been an assistant receivers coach with the Panthers the last three seasons.

There was a report over the weekend from a South Carolina television station that University of South Carolina receivers coach Bryan McClendon was taking a job on Mike Tomlin’s staff, though there was no specific mention of which job.

The Steelers brought veteran assistant Ray Sherman as interim receivers coach last year, after assistant Darryl Drake died during training camp.

  1. Jerricho was a great clutch receiver for many years… and worked along side with some amazing Steeler QBs as well as Ben. I think this would be an great addition, but kinda puzzling that they havent kicked the tires on Hines.. either way im pretty excited to see what Jerricho can bring to the WR room!

  2. YouTube Jerrico Cotchery Tough as Nails to see one of the great efforts of all-time. Watch at 1:18. Great clutch reception. He could be a coach on my team any time.
