Default Steelers Hire Jack Bicknell Jr. As OLine Coach

Bob Labriola ‏@BobLabriola

Steelers hire Jack Bicknell Jr. as their offensive line coach. He replaces Sean Kugler, the new head coach at UTEP.

Updates will follow.

update -- Since it's a slow news day and reports aren't really coming out yet, here's the offensive line stats for the regular season last year in which he was the OLine coach of the Chiefs.

update 2 -- Because I don't like Bouchette, I don't have PG Plus but if anyone is, there's an article there about this hiring. Feel free to post it if you're able to. But, here's what Dave is tweeting.

Bicknell is versed in both the power & zone blocking schemes. #steelers

Mike Tomlin thinks a lot of Tom Coughlin and I bet he talked to him quite a bit about Bicknell #steelers

[In reply to whether or not he likes the hire] I like the aspect that he ran the zone a lot at KC. We need to run more of that.

So, it looks like he's bringing a zone blocking scheme to Pittsburgh.

update 3 -- A little video of the hiring and some background information on Jack himself

23 years of collegiate coaching experience is pretty good. Also, only giving up 28 sacks when he was the Asst. OLine coach of the Giants is a pretty nice looking stat as well.
