    If this is supposed to be moving forward, color me totally unimpressed.

    I cant wait to see if we hire him. I then can state how great or terrible he is.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    There's been speculation that the Canada hire hasn't been made official because the Steelers hadn't interviewed a minority candidate yet.

    I don't think Jackson will be our next OC.

    It's too bad they didn't interview someone younger to give them experience through the process.

    Assuming this rumor is true.

    Doesn’t that just apply to the head coaching position?

    I don’t like how reporters write things as facts when they haven’t been finalized.

    I was just going to ask the same question. I then remembered that there have recently been additions to the minority hiring rules and wondered if that included co-ordinators...and this is what I found.

    Earlier this year, the NFL expanded the Rooney Rule to stipulate that teams must interview at least two minority candidates (rather than one) for head coaching vacancies. Also, the Rule now dictates that at least one minority must be interviewed for any open coordinator position.

    thanks.. well, sucks for Hue but at least it keeps his name out there.

    This was an AFCN favor.
