    Sounds very interesting and with a ton of experience like Richard Mann, the WR coach Tomlin added last year.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Interesting name. There are apparently a few guys out there with good pedigree and some ties to the organization. Hope they make a good hire.

    RB coach is the least of this teams worries

    I would rather see them kick a young guy like sarret over there instead of hiring some fossil. Seems funny experience is bad for some and good for others. Having him serve in a different capacity under munchak could speed his development and may prove to be the heir apparent in case munchak moves on in a year or two.

    He sounds good. But, if he is a good NFL position coach, why is coaching TEs at Colorado St?
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
