Steelers fire offensive coordinator Matt Canada

Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada has been fired.

Head coach Mike Tomlin introduced the firing in a short assertion.

“Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator. I appreciate Matt’s hard work and dedication, and I wish him the best moving forward in his career,” Tomlin mentioned.

There’s been no official phrase on who shall be calling the Steelers’ offensive performs going ahead, however Steelers quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and operating backs coach Eddie Faulkner will reportedly assume Canada’s duties.

A change was one thing Steelers followers had been begging for all season, as younger quarterback Kenny Pickett has proven no progress in his second season and the Steelers have struggled week after week to maneuver the ball.

Despite the offensive struggles, the Steelers stay very a lot alive within the AFC playoff race, and there’s a great probability they’ll be enjoying significant video games for the remainder of the yr. They’ll want a greater offense to win these video games, and Tomlin made the change he needed to make.
