With the firing of Jack Bicknell Jr, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still searching for a new offensive line coach. While, they have interviewed two potential candidates, Shaun Sarrett and Mike Munchak, there is still no word on what  direction the team is heading.

Unfortunately, for fans, the coaching staff and front office have been too quiet about the ongoing search, with the names of outside candidates only being speculated about. Carolina Panthers assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown would definitely be as name that would fall into that category.
 
With the Steelers having one of the youngest offensive lines in the NFL, this should be an attractive position for coaches across the league, specifically those looking for work. On top of that, with the direction of the offense a known commodity moving forward, the new coach will definitely know what he is in for.
 
In the end, Tomlin has to hit a home run with this hire, and his history seems to show he can make the right choice. Hopefully, for Steelers fans, a hint to what the organization is thinking will come sooner than later. After all, it is Senior Bowl week, where coaching hires almost outweigh the number of potential NFL draftees on display.
