Mike Munchak releases statement as to why he is staying with the Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach withdrew his name for the Arizona Cardinals head coaching job, and he explains why.

Pittsburgh Steelers v Baltimore Ravens

On a day filled with change for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there will be one coach remaining in the Steel City. After the dismissal of offensive coordinator Todd Haley, offensive line coach Mike Munchak has decided to stay in Pittsburgh.

Wednesday evening he released a statement, via the team’s Public Relations team, explaining his decision.

Munchak was a finalist for the Arizona Cardinals’ head coaching vacancy, but when the team requested a second interview, he withdrew his name from consideration.

While it doesn’t look like Munchak will be the team’s new offensive coordinator, he will have the opportunity to continue to lead one of the league’s best offensive lines.

Under Munchak the line has flourished.

I speak for all Steelers fans when I say we are all excited to see Munchak stay with Pittsburgh for at least another year!
