Steelers hire Richard Mann as new receivers coach

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

After the second member of the offensive coaching staff took a collegiate job, Pittsburgh has found their replacement in less than a week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have hired a new wide receivers coach in Richard Mann, who will be replacing Scottie Montgomery, the team's former assistant who accepted an advanced role with Duke University.

Mann may be a stranger to some in Steeler Nation, but he is familiar with the area, and Mike Tomlin. Mann was a graduate from Aliquippa High School, and has been enshrined in the Aliquippa and Beaver County Halls-of-Fame. Mann and Tomlin worked together with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-2005. Mann actually stayed with the organization through 2009 as a receivers coach, and also as assistant head coach in his final year.

Prior to Tampa Bay, Mann's career also held the same position with the Washington Redskins (2001), Kansas City Chiefs (1999-2000), Baltimore Ravens (1997-98), New York Jets (1994-96, also coached TE's in 1995), Cleveland Browns (1985-1993, also coached TE's in 1995) and the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts (1982-84). Prior to the NFL, Mann also coached college football with Louisville and Arizona State, Mann's alma-mater.

Since his time with Tampa Bay, Mann has been working with players preparing to enter the professional game through the NFL draft.

Mann will return to the sidelines to refine a young receiving corps which left much to be desired in 2012, after untimely drops and fumbles marred an already difficult year.
