The fans and media have been anxiously waiting for the Pittsburgh Steelers to name their new offensive line coach, the wait is finally over as the team has named Jack Bicknell, Jr. as their new offensive line coach.

Bicknell is replacing Sean Kugler, who accepted a collegiate head coaching position with the University of Texas, El Paso. Bicknell served in the same role with the Kansas City Chiefs, becoming a free agent when the organization cleaned house following the 2012 season, eventually landing Andy Reid who is installing his own staff.

Bicknell will be the third offensive line coach for the Steelers since Mike Tomlin became head coach. His hands will be full with a unit notorious for allowing too many unnecessary hits to their franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, especially if the team parts ways with former veteran starters Max Starks or Willie Colon. He will also need to push the young trio of Mike Adams, David DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert.
