While the Steelers fired offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, there's no need for them to blow up their entire offensive system. That is why it's most likely that Mike Tomlin will stay within and promote Randy Fichtner and/or Sean Kugler to the post.
Bringing in a new offensive coordinator and a new system makes no sense on a team that basically has had the same offense for 10 years. Bringing in a new offensive coordinator and making him run the Steelers system makes maybe less sense. Neither will work.
That was Bouchette on Wednesday
This is Bouchette today
This is Mike Tomlin's first big hire, and it will be an intriguing one all the way around. And anyone right now who says they know what he's going to do is merely guessing. I certainly have no idea. I thought he might hire from within but the longer he goes, the less it looks as though that will happen.
In other words nobody has a clue who is going to be hired as the new OC
