This signing is huge. That's three ex-head coaches on the sidelines in addition to Tomlin. Huge for our younger guys' development as well.

Mike Munchak Hired to Be Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Line Coach

Former Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak has accepted the position of offensive line coach with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Munchak has had several interviews since being fired last week after three seasons as head coach in Tennessee, including talking to the Cleveland Browns about becoming their head coach.

He also interviewed with the Houston Texans about becoming their offensive line coach. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin fired Jack Bicknell Jr. after just one season as the o-line coach.

That seems like a great move now that they’ve secured the services of arguably the best o-line coach in the NFL.

The Steelers offensive line has routinely been among the worst in the NFL recently, but the play-making ability of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has helped to mask their weaknesses.

Munchak was the first o-lineman selected and the eighth-overall pick by the Houston Oilers. in the 1982 NFL Draft. From there, he went on to have a hall of fame career and was selected to 10 All-Pro teams and made nine Pro Bowl appearances.

This is a huge pickup for the Steelers, and with Pro bowl center Maurkice Pouncey returning next year from a torn ACL, this could become one of the better o-lines Roethlisberger has had in his career.

Just further proof that the Rooneys pick up all the WPA guys that they can

I think it's important to note that Ian Rapoport hasn't reported it yet, thus it's as good as confirmed.

I saw on a Tennessee Titans board that their fanbase actually thinks Pittsburgh will now be unstoppable with Munchak running the O-Line.

Is that guy really that good?

I don't even know why I am excited!

He's a Hall of Fame guard that turned Chris Johnson into a 2000 yard Running Back. Le'Veon is infinitely more talented than CJWashedup.

Excellent hire. Kind of a Russ Grimm with better technique. Have you guys noticed that any time the Steelers hire a new position coach, one of the first two picks is someone for his squad? I'd expect one of our first two picks to be a lineman. I thought they might go with two defensive players at fist, but I'm betting they wanna improve that running game to keep the defense off the field.
