Default Richard Mann named wide receiver coach

The Pittsburgh Steelers have named Richard Mann as their new wide receivers coach, it was announced today.

Mann comes to Pittsburgh with 28 years of NFL coaching experience, most recently serving as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers coach from 2002-09. In 2009, Mann also served as the Buccaneersí assistant head coach. In Mannís first seven seasons with Tampa Bay, the wide receiving corps produced at least one 1,000-yard receiver in each season, which is the longest streak in Buccaneers history. In 2002, Mann was integral in developing the Buccaneersí receiving unit, which played a key role in the franchiseís first Super Bowl-winning season.

Mann is reunited with Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin, as the two worked together with the Buccaneers from 2002-05, when Tomlin coached the teamís defensive backs.

For the past few years, Mann has been assisting and consulting players as they prepare for the NFL Draft. Prior to joining the Buccaneers, Mann spent the 2001 season as the Washington Redskins wide receivers coach. He also spent time as a wide receivers coach with the Kansas City Chiefs (1999-2000), Baltimore Ravens (1997-98), New York Jets (1994-96), Cleveland Browns (1985-1993) and the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts (1982-84). Mann also coached the tight ends for the Browns in 1985 and the Jets in 1995, in addition to coaching the teamís wide receivers.

Before coaching in the NFL, Mann made two stops as a collegiate coach. From 1980-81, Mann coached the wide receivers for the University of Louisville. He got his first college coaching job at his alma mater, Arizona State University, coaching wide receivers from 1974-79.

A native of Aliquippa (Pa.), Mann graduated from Aliquippa High School, the same place he began his coaching career in 1970. He was inducted into the Aliquippa Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Beaver County (Pa.) Hall of Fame in 1999.

might be a good hire. kind of scary that he hasn't been an NFL coach for a few years.

Or, Tomlin knew him from his days in Tampa Bay and he just happened to be from PA.

Anyway, the guy has 28 years of experience behind him and I trust Tomlin. 28 years of coaching isn't forgotten or slips someones mind - I trust his judgment and he's a stickler for details. This, on the surface, looks like a solid hire. Let's not be debbie-downer's here guys.

Mann, one of the stars on Aliquippa’s 1964 WPIAL championship, spent 28 years as an NFL wide receivers coach. He spent time with the Baltimore Colts, Redskins, Chiefs, Jets, Browns, Ravens and Buccaneers.

When Mann joined the Bucs in 2002, their secondary coach at the time was Mike Tomlin, who’s now the Steelers head coach.

Tomlin left Tampa Bay in 2006 when he became the Minnesota Vikings' defensive coordinator. He replaced Bill Cowher as Steelers coach in 2007.
Mann, 65, hasn’t coached since the 2009 season. His contract wasn’t renewed when Raheem Morris replaced Jon Gruden as the Buccaneers’ head coach.

The Steelers have an opening for a wide receivers coach after Scottie Montgomery left last week to become the offensive coordinator at Duke, his alma mater.

Trying to find a little more about Mann's coaching career, but all I can seem to find is porn. Poor guy shares a name with a porn star.

That's the excuse that I use with my wife all of the time:
"Honey, I was looking up a RB named Shyla Stylez... "

At first I didn't get it, then realized Richard Mann = Dick Man.

That's a shame.
