Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada has been fired.
Head coach Mike Tomlin announced the firing in a brief statement.
“Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator. I appreciate Matt’s hard work and dedication, and I wish him the best for the future of his career,” Tomlin said.
There is no official word on who will run the Steelers’ offensive plays in the future, but Steelers quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are reportedly taking over Canada’s duties. .
A change was something Steelers fans had been clamoring for all season, as young quarterback Kenny Pickett showed no growth in his second season and the Steelers struggled week after week moving the ball.
Despite the offensive struggles, the Steelers remain very much alive in the AFC playoff race, and there’s a good chance they’ll play meaningful games the rest of the year. They’ll need a better offense to win these games, and Tomlin made the change he needed to make.
