Pittsburgh • The Pittsburgh Steelers have hired former Tennessee Titans boss Mike Munchak as their new offensive line coach.
Munchak replaces Jack Bicknell Jr., who was let go after just one season with the Steelers.
Munchak, a Hall of Fame guard during his 12-year playing career with the Houston Oilers, went 22-26 in three seasons with Tennessee. He was fired by the Titans on Jan. 4 over a disagreement with upper management on which direction to take the franchise.
The 53-year-old Munchak served as Tennessee’s offensive line coach from 1997-2010. During that period the Titans ranked seventh in the NFL in yards rushing per game and had four different linemen make the Pro Bowl.
Munchak grew up in Scranton, Pa., and played at Penn State before heading to the NFL.
