    Tomlin hired Blaine in February of 2018 as a coaching assistant, which was also his first coaching job out of college. Blaine played a couple of season at James Madison and then transferred to the University of Charleston (W.V.), where he was, you guessed it, a wide receiver.

    I recall Mike Tomlin being profoundly affected by Bill Stewart's sudden death earlier this decade. And now his son could potentially be filling in following the sudden death of another beloved coach. Circle of life.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    that would be a pretty underwhelming hire for a group that is largely unproven

    A rookie coach for a very young WR Corp. Doesn't seem like the best choice.

    There are other coaches on our staff who have been WR coach before who can help guide the kid (Randy Fichtner, Mike Tomlin, even Tom Bradley). Plus Blaine Stewart was on our staff for all of last season, so he had a front row seat to see how Darryl Drake coached here.

    Longtime NFL Coach Ray Sherman Present At Steelers Tuesday Practice

    By Dave Bryan
    Posted on August 13, 2019

    During his Tuesday morning press conference, in which he addressed the recent and sudden passing of the teamís wide receiver coach Darryl Drake, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked what his current plans are to fill that huge void on his staff. Tomlin respectfully said that the team was currently in the process of developing a plan in regard to that topic but that he didnít believe it was the appropriate time or place to discuss the intimate details of it. However, during Tuesdayís rain-shortened training camp practice we may have gotten a clue as to how the Steelers might go about handling the coaching of their wide receivers moving forward.

    According to several Tuesday media reports on Twitter, longtime NFL and college coach Ray Sherman was spotted again on the field helping out with the Steelers wide receivers along with the teamís current offensive assistant Blaine Stewart. Sherman has reportedly been helping out throughout training camp this year.

    If Shermanís name sounds familiar, itís because he was once the Steelers offensive coordinator during the 1998 season. That season, Shermanís offense featured a running attack that finished seventh in the NFL. However, after the Steelers went 7Ė9 that season, Sherman bowed out.

    ďThey came to a mutual conclusion that Ray would resign and pursue other NFL coaching opportunities,Ē Shermanís agent Ray Anderson reportedly said at the time, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Reports at that time indicated that then-Steelers head coach Bill Cowher had planned to fire Sherman the following week had he not resigned as the teamís offensive coordinator in early January of 1999.

    Sherman, who originally broke into the coaching ranks in 1974 as a graduate assistant at San Jose State, has since coached for 9 different NFL franchises since first breaking into the league in 1988 with the Houston Oilers as a running backs coach. Most-recently, Sherman was the wide receivers coach of the St. Louis Rams from 2012-2015. You can read Shermanís last full NFL team bio from the 2015 season, his last with the Rams, below.

    As for Stewart, he is now in his second season as a coaching assistant with the Steelers, after being named to the position on February 6, 2018. He is the son of the late West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart. He had previously played wide receiver as a graduate student at the Division-II University of Charleston (W.Va.) a few years ago.

    We should find out fairly soon if Sherman has been hired to take over the Steelers wide receivers room. With such a young group of wide receivers currently on the Steelers roster, another older and experienced coach might be what Tomlin thinks that group of players needs right now. We should find out soon if thatís indeed the case.

    I remember not being the biggest fan of Sherman when he was the OC, but especially given the options, or lack thereof, at this point in the offseason, Sherman working with a younger coach makes a lot of sense.

    If memory serves correctly, didn't Sherman pretty much destroy Kordell. With Gailey, Kordell looked promising, then it was all downhill after a year with Sherman. If we double down on Sherman, this could be the end of Juju.

    We might as well see if Joe Walton or Todd Haley want to come be our WR coaches if we're considering Sherman.

    We need to remember he would be coaching the WRs, not the OC. August isn’t exactly a prime month to find coaching replacements.
