What Is The Job Of A Quality Control Coach?

It was announced earlier on Wednesday that the Pittsburgh Steelers had hired Shaun Sarrett as their new offensive quality control coach to replace Hunter Goodwin, who left to become the new offensive line coach for the Indianapolis Colts several weeks ago.
