Steelers Hire Sean Kugler As New Offensive Line Coach


In a shocking move the Steelers have agreed to terms with Sean Kugler to become the new offensive line coach. Kugler was part of a Buffalo Bills staff that has been allowed to interview for other jobs while they search for a new head coach. The Steelers fired offensive line coach Larry Zierlein after the season. Kugler was promoted to offensive line coach for Buffalo in January 2008 and coached left tackle Jason Peters to his second consecutive Pro Bowl. Kugler previously served as the Bills assistant offensive line coach, working primarily with the tackles.

In other coaching news, The Steelers have lost another assistant from their coaching staff as Lou Spanos, a defensive assistant, has agreed to become the linebackers coach for the Washington Redskins under new head coach Mike Shanahan. Also the Steelers have given linebackers coach, Keith Butler, permission to interview with the Miami Dolphins for the vacant defensive coordinator position. Butler has been speculated as the successor to defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau when he retires.

    What I’ve read says he’s an aggressive coach that gets the best out of his players talents.

    Curious, what about the move shocks you? How quickly they moved to sign him? Or are you not that impressed with his track record?
