As announced by head coach Mike Tomlin, the Pittsburgh Steelers have parted ways with offensive coordinator Matt Canada. While Tomlin expressed gratitude for Canada’s efforts and wished him well in his future endeavors, the decision was made in light of ongoing struggles with the team’s offense this season. Despite having a promising rookie quarterback in Kenny Pickett, the Steelers have struggled to move the ball and improve their offensive performance.
Despite these challenges, the team remains in contention for a playoff spot and has several crucial games ahead. In response to these issues, Tomlin recognized the need for a change and took decisive action to address the ongoing problems with the offense.
While it has not been officially announced who will be calling plays moving forward, sources have reported that quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are expected to take on those duties. The Steelers hope that this change will bring new energy and improved performance to their offense, allowing them to succeed in upcoming games and ultimately secure a spot in the postseason.
