Report: Mike Munchak to meet with Steelers about offensive line job
Posted by Josh Alper on January 17, 2014, 12:10 PM EST
Former Titans coach Mike Munchak interviewed for the head coaching jobs in Detroit and at Penn State, but both of those jobs have gone to other candidates.
Munchak has also interviewed with the Browns, but they are waiting to speak to assistants from teams still in the playoffs so Munchak is looking at options for other positions as well. He reportedly interviewed for the Texans offensive line coach opening and now the Hall of Fame guard has lined up an interview with another team looking for a line coach.
Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports that Munchak is expected to meet with the Steelers soon about becoming their offensive line coach. The Steelers fired Jack Bicknell Jr. after the end of the regular season, setting them up to have their third line coach in three years marked by inconsistent play along the offensive line.
Munchak was a highly position coach with the Oilers and Titans before getting bumped up to the top job in 2011 and its looking like his best chance to build up to another shot as a head coach is to move back to his old stomping grounds.
