Steelers Fire OC Matt Canada

The Pittsburgh Steelers are moving on from their offensive coordinator.



PITTSBURGH, PA — The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced offensive coordinator Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator. 

Head coach Mike Tomlin released a statement stating Canada will no longer be working as the team’s offensive coordinator. He has been with the team for the last three season, but has failed to find much success, and with Kenny Pickett’s struggles rising, the team has made the decision to move on.

“Matt Canada has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator,” Tomlin wrote in a statement. “I appreciate Matt’s hard work and dedication, and I wish him the best moving forward in his career.”

This season, the Steelers offense ranked 28th in yards per game, 30th in yards and 28th in points per game. Since taking over as the starter, Pickett has thrown just 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

The Steelers will likely turn to quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan as the play-caller for the remainder of the season. Sullivan was the offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2012-2013 and the New York Giants from 2016-2017.
