The Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to part ways with offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Head coach Mike Tomlin made the announcement in a brief statement expressing his appreciation for Canada’s hard work and dedication, while also wishing him the best in his future endeavors.
There has been no official announcement on who will take over as the play caller for the Steelers’ offense. However, there are reports that quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner will be assuming Canada’s responsibilities.
This change comes after Steelers fans had been calling for a change throughout the season. Quarterback Kenny Pickett has struggled to show growth in his second season, and the offense has been consistently unable to move the ball downfield.
Despite these struggles, the Steelers are still in the hunt for a spot in the AFC playoffs. With meaningful games on the horizon, the team will need a stronger offense to compete. Tomlin made the difficult decision to make a change in order to give the team the best chance at success.
