Default Any chance the Steelers hire Norm Chow?

The Titans just fired him, and I know Tomlin said he's keeping Arians but......

Definite slap in the face to Chow - my bet is Vince Young and Chow were not seeing eye to eye

No way Chow comes to Pitt - Tomlin says he likes the current staff and FWIW Ben appears to like both Arians and Anderson

Hmmm....let's see -- He's been an OC for over 30 years....he developed some pretty good QBs -- Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Ty Detmer, Philip Rivers, Carson Palmer & Matt Leinart

If he's such a miracle worker on O, why did Fisher give him the heave-ho? Because Young wanted him gone? Considering that Young hasn't shown much more than the ability to be another Vick as far as being a QB goes, I would hope there's a more compelling reason than that.

he'll go to Dallas most likely since their O coordinator is heading to Baltimore.

It is easier to fire the OC than it is to fire an underperforming #1 draft pick QB - I recall Chow was brought in when Fisher was in a losing spell so Fisher may now have the power to say see ya to Norm.

Based on this story from the Nashville paper it may be Fisher and not Young who had issues, although Chow apparently does not see Young as the next Brady:

“Over the last week, we have done a lot of self-evaluation and I think we still have work ahead of us to reach our ultimate goal. I have informed Norm that he will not be retained as our offensive coordinator. I appreciate all of the hard work and contributions he made to the organization during his time here, but I have decided to go in a different direction and will start the process of finding a new offensive coordinator. We wish Norm and his family the best in their future endeavors.”

Chow, who had recently signed a two-year contract extension with the Titans, left town last week and has spent the last few days with his family in California. He was scheduled to return to Nashville before heading with the Titans coaching staff to Mobile, Ala., for Senior Bowl practices.


Asked if he thought the next offensive coaching staff could make things work with quarterback Vince Young, who threw nine touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season, Chow replied: “Obviously Jeff didn’t think that I could. I thought I was. That’s the thing. I don’t know… but it’s going to take some patience.’’

The Titans had the NFL's 27th-ranked passing offense this season, one year after Young was the league's offensive rookie of the year.

Young was blindsided by the news of Chow's firing, according to a representative.

“He was shocked,’’ said Mike Mu, Young's marketing agent. “I broke the news to him. He thought I was kidding him and didn’t believe it.’’

Default running QB'S = O.C. doom....

when are NFL front offices gonna put an end to the running QB experiments? how many OC's have to take the blame,before owners and GM's realize that these college, run first QB's just don't cut it. it's only vince youngs second year, and the titans just shit canned norm chow.how many OC's did the steelers go through, TRYING (unsuccessfully) to develop kordell? how many OC's got the axe because of Vick ?
Titans fire Chow after three seasons....

Chow, 61, told The Tennessean he was disappointed and didn't see the firing coming. He said he thought he could help develop Vince Young, who threw nearly twice as many interceptions as touchdowns this season.
