Colts Hire Harold Goodwin From Steelers To Be Offensive Line Coach

The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost another member of their coaching staff to the Indianapolis Colts as it was announced today that Steelers offensive assistant Harold Goodwin was hired to be the Colts new offensive line coach. Goodwin will now join former Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians on the Chuck Pagano led staff.

Goodwin just finished his fifth season with the Steelers as the team’s offensive assistant after spending three seasons (2004-06) as the assistant offensive line coach with the Chicago Bears. He also was the was the offensive line coach at Central Michigan from 2000-03 and was an offensive lineman himself at Michigan from 1992-94.

The news broke earlier in the day that the Steelers were allowing Goodwin and defensive assistant Jerry Olsavsky to interview with other teams.

The Colts also were interested in hiring away Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler to be their new defensive coordinator, but it was announced on Monday that Butler would remain with the Steelers.

    You would think an ex-ravens coach/coord. would go after the coaches on his former team??? HMMMMM!! They can have B.A. but what’s wrong with this picture??? Even though the ravens were lucky enough to have swept us this year,they know we’ll be back.So why not have one of their own ex-coaches raid our coaching staff to weaken us..They know that we’re better than them.

    Olavasky was brought in to be Butlers replacement…
    that will be a loss.
    LeBeau should retire… move Butler to DC and Olavasky to LB coach.
