The Pittsburgh Steelers parted ways with offensive coordinator Matt Canada on Tuesday, a move prompted by the ongoing struggles of the offense, particularly in their recent game against the Cleveland Browns where they managed only 10 points and displayed inefficiency in the passing game.
With Canada’s departure, the Steelers are actively seeking a new full-time offensive coordinator, and former team wide receiver Antonio Brown has expressed his interest in the position. Brown boldly tweeted, “AB OC.”
Throughout Canada’s tenure, Brown has been a vocal critic on social media, aligning with the sentiments of many Steelers fans who have long called for Canada’s dismissal. While it’s unlikely that Brown will become the next offensive coordinator, given the circumstances surrounding his departure from the team, he doesn’t shy away from dreaming.
For the interim, running backs coach Eddie Faulkner will assume the role of OC, while quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan will take charge of calling plays, leveraging his close working relationship with quarterback Kenny Pickett.
Antonio Brown’s tumultuous history in the NFL suggests that he has burned bridges, making a return to the league improbable.
