Steelers hire quality control coach
Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Coach Mike Tomlin has tentatively filled out his coaching staff with the hiring of Shaun Sarrett as the Steelers offensive quality control coach.

Sarrett, who has coached at Duke since 2008, replaces Harold Goodwin, who joined Bruce Arians as the line coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

Tomlin has not hired anyone to coach the running backs, hoping Kirby Wilson can recuperate from severe burns during a Jan. 6 fire at his home to resume that role this season.

Sarrett also spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at Marshall University and played at Kent University. He coached tight ends in addition to his duties as quality control coach at Duke.

We got WR Scottie Montgomery from Duke a couple of years ago. Montgomery and Sarrett were on that same coaching staff in 2008 & 2009. Wonder if Scottie put in a good word for his old pal Shaun?

Also interesting is that Sarrett was an o-lineman at Kent State...in 2001, he was a teammate of James Harrison. I wonder if he has any stories about trying to block Mr. Deebo Silverback in practice.

david cutcliffe does a very good job at duke with the material he has to work with. He has a very sound offensive mind. No surprise that he can develop coaches.

a couple of his former quarterbacks turned out ok too.
