Make that one position coach the Steelers will need to replace this offseason. It's being reported by several outlets that Pittsburgh has hired Jack Bicknell Jr. to be the new offensive line coach for the 2013 season, replacing Sean Kugler. Kugler, who filled that role for three seasons, left following the 2012 campaign to be the new head coach at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).
Bicknell spent the 2012 season as the offensive line coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, but was let go when head coach Romeo Crenell was fired and replaced by Andy Reid, who decided to go with his own staff.
Bicknell, 49, spent more than two decades coaching in the college ranks and was the head coach at Louisiana Tech for eight seasons from 1999-2006.
The Steelers are still in search of a special teams coach after Amos Jones left this past weekend to fill the same role on Bruce Arians' staff with the Arizona Cardinals.

Polling Suspended (Again)
Bloggers polling plugin officially SUCKS. For weeks now I've watch as vote tallies on Steelers free agency, draft needs, and the draft itself go up... and then down.
Thanks to all of those who voted, but I'm taking the poll on Jarvis Jones down because there are 80% fewer votes now than yesterday afternoon....
