The Pittsburgh Steelers have recently fired offensive coordinator Matt Canada, as announced by head coach Mike Tomlin. Although Tomlin expressed gratitude for Canada’s hard work and dedication, he wished him the best in his future endeavors. At this time, it is unclear who will be calling offensive plays moving forward. However, rumors suggest that quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are taking over those duties.
The decision to let go of Canada came after a season filled with struggles for the Steelers’ offense. Despite Kenny Pickett’s efforts in his second season, the team has been unable to move the ball consistently week after week. Despite these challenges, the Steelers remain in contention for the AFC playoffs and are expected to play some significant games in the coming months.
Tomlin recognized that a change was needed to help the team succeed in important games and made the necessary adjustments to address ongoing issues with the offense.
