The Pittsburgh Steelers still have an opening on their coaching staff for an offensive line coach. While there has been little talk of the search process, that could all change in the next few days.Shaun Sarrett for the opening. Sarrett could be a solid candidate as he is likely partially responsible for the units improvement over the second half of the season as the team limited Jack Bicknell's role. A two-year member of the Steelers staff, he has spent time in the college ranks as an offensive line coach at Duke University.
While Sarrett is a strong internal candidate, the hiring process may take a step forward this week as the Carolina Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday by the San Francisco 49ers. This result opens the door for head coach Mike Tomlin to interview Panthers assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown.
Brown has been a name mentioned in this process from the start because of his experience developing young offensive linemen. This experience is exactly what the Steelers need, as they possess what should be one of the more attractive young offensive line units in the league.
