What did he bring to the Steelers and what does his departure mean?
Kugler wouldn't be the first NFL coach hired as a college head coach to finish the season with the pro team, but it doesn't have the highest rate of success, either.
As word broke of Sean Kugler's signing with his former alma mater to be their new head coach, the Steelers began their search for a new offensive line coach.
Kugler, a UTEP alumnus, returns to the coaching game after shaping offensive lines in the NFL since 2007.
Recent remarks by new offensive coordinator Todd Haley indicate he's a better fit for the Steelers coaching staff than many initially believed.
Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson dressed down his players during the Eagles game for not listening to him, and expects them to grind defenses into "little bitty meatballs."
