New Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak gets to write "HOF" next to his signature.

His new players hope they can one day do the same.

Munchak, the new offensive line coach of the Steelers, earned a place in Canton, Ohio after a stellar 12-year career with the Oilers. He was apart of many memorable battles with the Steelers during that time that included Pittsburgh's thrilling 26-23 overtime playoff win in 1989.

Steelers.com's Teresa Varley talked with Steelers linemen David DeCastro and Maurkice Pouncey about their new coach.

DeCastro: "I am hugely excited. Any time you get a guy like that, his resume speaks for itself. I can’t wait to be able to pick his brain. I am sure he will have a ton of good stuff for us to make us better players and a better unit."

Pouncey: "He is going to be awesome. The technique he can bring, the pass protection, the run game stuff he can bring. I think all of the guys are ready to learn it and help their game improve. Nobody has an agenda. Everyone here wants to get better. I think we have the right group here. Everyone here wants to be great leaders on the offensive line and take advantage and go out there and help this team win.

"When I came in here, as a center I heard of Dermontti Dawson and Mike Webster but hadn’t watched them. It’s the same thing with Coach Munchak. I am definitely going to take some things from coach and put it in my game."
