If the Pittsburgh Steelers are to lose their noted offensive line coach to a head coaching role with another team in 2019, it appears it will not be to the Denver Broncos. Named as one of the two men left in the running for the position earlier in the day, it appears Mike Munchak has lost out to Vic Fangio of the Chicago Bears in the battle for the job.

With Munchak still potentially in the running for the same position with the Cleveland Browns, there is no guarantee he will return to Pittsburgh in 2019, but there can be little question the number of opportunity are closing with names like Freddie Kitchens seemingly having the inside track with the Browns.

Munchak reportedly turned down interest from the Miami Dolphins for their top job and both the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have filled their vacancies in the last week as well.

Given his contributions to the team since joining the Steelers in 2014, there can be few fans who will not be happy about the prospect of keeping Munchak for at least one more season and his offensive line are sure to be delighted to have him back with them for another year.
