Mike Tomlin, the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, has announced that offensive coordinator Matt Canada has been fired. This change came after ongoing struggles with the Steelers’ offense this season, which left fans demanding a change.
Tomlin expressed appreciation for Canada’s hard work and dedication and wished him the best in his future endeavors. The exact reason for Canada’s firing was not disclosed, but it is believed that his play-calling strategies were not effective enough to improve the team’s performance.
Moving forward, it is unclear who will be calling offensive plays for the Steelers. However, quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner are reportedly taking over some of Canada’s duties. It is possible that one of them may eventually become the new offensive coordinator, but no official announcement has been made yet.
Despite these struggles, the Steelers are still in the running for the AFC playoffs and are expected to play significant games for the rest of the year. In particular, they have a crucial matchup against their divisional rival Ravens coming up on Sunday afternoon. Tomlin recognizes that a better offense will be crucial to winning these important games and ensuring that the Steelers make it to the postseason once again.
