Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has announced the firing of offensive coordinator Matt Canada. The move comes after the team’s offense has struggled consistently this season, leaving fans calling for a change. Despite quarterback Kenny Pickett showing no improvement in his second season and the team’s struggles to move the ball, the Steelers are still in contention for the AFC playoffs and have big games ahead of them. Tomlin recognized that a better offense was necessary to win these important games and made the change to address ongoing issues.
Tomlin expressed appreciation for Canada’s hard work and dedication, wishing him the best in his future endeavors. It is not yet officially announced who will call the offensive plays moving forward, but running backs coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are reportedly taking on the duties. The change in offensive coordinator is expected to bring new ideas and strategies to improve the team’s performance on the field.
