The Pittsburgh Steelers have made a significant change to their coaching staff by firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada, head coach Mike Tomlin announced. Tomlin expressed gratitude for Canada’s hard work and dedication and wished him the best in his future endeavors. Although it has not been officially stated who will be calling offensive plays moving forward, reports suggest that quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner will be taking over Canada’s duties.
The decision to fire Canada came after ongoing struggles with the Steelers’ offense this season, which has left fans demanding a change. Despite second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett showing promise in his first season, he has not shown improvement in his second year, and the team has struggled to move the ball week after week. However, the Steelers are still in contention for an AFC playoff spot and are expected to play significant games for the remainder of the season.
Tomlin recognized that a better offense was needed to win these important games and made the necessary changes to address ongoing issues on the field. With new leadership in place, the Steelers hope to improve their offense and make a strong push towards the postseason.
