The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that offensive coordinator Matt Canada has been fired, as revealed by head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin expressed appreciation for Canada’s hard work and dedication and wished him the best in his future endeavors. While it has not been officially stated who will be calling offensive plays moving forward, quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are reportedly taking over Canada’s duties.
The change came after ongoing struggles with the Steelers’ offense this season, which left fans demanding a change. Quarterback Kenny Pickett has not shown improvement in his second season, and the team has struggled to move the ball week after week. Despite these struggles, the Steelers are still in the running for the AFC playoffs and are expected to play significant games for the rest of the year.
Tomlin recognized the need for a better offense to win these important games and made the necessary change to address the ongoing issues. With their new offensive coordinators in place, the Steelers hope to improve their offense and make a push towards winning the AFC playoffs.
