Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin announced the firing of offensive coordinator Matt Canada, citing ongoing struggles with the team’s offense this season. Tomlin expressed appreciation for Canada’s hard work and dedication and wished him the best in his future endeavors.
The decision came after fans demanded a change following poor performance by quarterback Kenny Pickett and difficulties in moving the ball week after week. Despite these challenges, the Steelers remain in contention for the AFC playoffs and are expected to play significant games for the remainder of the year.
Tomlin recognized that a better offense was necessary to win these important games and made the change to address ongoing issues, with quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan and running backs coach Eddie Faulkner reportedly taking over Canada’s duties.
