There was change within the Pittsburgh Steelers coaching staff, it just wasn’t on the defense side of the football — as many expected.
No, it was Todd Haley who was shown the door, or not re-signed, and the team promoted quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner to fill Haley’s role as offensive coordinator.
The big question everyone is asking now, “What will the offense look like? Is Ben Roethlisberger basically the offensive coordinator?”
While attending the Pro Bowl for the AFC, Roethlisberger answered questions about just that in a brief media session. Roethlisberger spoke of how the Haley-to-Fichtner transition should be a smooth one, but also how the two have a tremendous relationship to build an offense together. Roethlisberger would then go on to say how the offense would be sculpted by several people, and not just one person, and the offense should pick up just where they left off.
That is a good thing, and something fans should hope happens considering the offense finished the season on a high note.
