The Pittsburgh Steelers have a couple of new candidates for their vacant position as offensive coordinator following the dismissal of Randy Fichtner at the end of the season.
According to numerous reports, the Steelers interviewed former Cleveland Browns head coach Hugh Jackson about the job earlier this week. The Steelers are also interested in Los Angeles Chargers coach Pep Hamilton for the job, according to Gary Dulac of Pittsburgh after a newspaper.
Hamilton will be interviewed for work on Friday.
Jackson and Hamilton join Steelers quarterback coach Matt Canada as candidates for the position. Canada is considered to be at the forefront of Fichtner’s place.
The Steelers finished the 2020 season, tied for 24th overall, along with the Philadelphia Eagles with an average of 334.6 yards per game. But the Steelers finished in 12th place with 26.0 points per game.
Jackson has not coached for the past two years, after briefly serving as Marvin Lewis’ special assistant in Cincinnati Bengals after the Browns released him. Hamilton spent a year in the chargers after being the head coach of DC Defenders at XFL.
Canada finished its first season with the Steelers.
