Steelers offensive line coach Sean Kugler joined John Seibel and Joe Starkey for an interview on 93.7 The Fan to update the guys on his first training camp with the team. Great interview as Kugler talks about several things.

Bengals.com has a respect piece on Dick LeBeau who helped mentor head coach Marvin Lewis when Lewis broke into the NFL in 1992 when they were both in Pittsburgh.

I for one am glad we got him back from the Bengals.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
