Default Steelers hire Billsí Kugler to coach O-line

http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/01/13/stee...-coach-o-line/

Quote:
The Steelers agreed to terms with Sean Kugler to become their offensive line coach, according to a league source.

Kugler was part of a Bills staff that has been allowed to interview for other jobs while the team searches for a new head coach. Pittsburgh, which had issues protecting the quarterback in recent years, fired offensive line coach Larry Zierlein after the season.

Buffalo allowed 46 sacks this past season with 103 QB hits and only had 6 rushing TDs. Excuse me if I'm not exactly overjoyed with this hiring. I'll just have to keep my faith in the Steelers FO and hope that they made the right choice. If they'll hire April for ST, I'll let this one pass.
