If it was fixed, why look to break it?

The Pittsburgh Steelers will interview assistant offensive line coach Shaun Sarrett for the team's open offensive line coaching position, Gerry Dulac reported Thursday.

Sarrett was said to have taken an active role in much of the unit's preparation as the season progressed in 2013. The team fired Jack Bicknell Jr. after one season with the team. Some reported Bicknell's role was diminished as the season wore on.

Pittsburgh allowed 43 saclks over the first eight games of the season. They only allowed 12 in the final eight games, just missing out on the postseason despite an 0-4 start.

Sarrett should be considered the front-runner for the position, having spent the last two years with the team. The Steelers are reportedly also interested in Carolina assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown.
