Report: Steelers Defensive Assistant Jerry Olsavsky To Interview With Bills
The Pittsburgh Steelers might not be done with turnover on their coaching staff this offseason as defensive assistant Jerry Olsavsky is expected to interview with the Buffalo Bills to become their new linebackers coach, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Olsavksy, a former Steelers linebacker himself, was hired in 2010 to replace Lou Spanos, who left to become linebackers coach with the Washington Redskins. Prior to him being hired by the Steelers, Olsavsky spent seven seasons coaching linebackers for Youngstown State.
Last week, the Bills named former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz as their new defensive coordinator. The Bills current linebackers coach Jim O’Neil is expected to interview with the Cleveland Browns this week for their open defensive coordinator job.
Should Olsavksy wind up being hired away, it will mark the third change to the Steelers coaching staff this offseason as offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. was fired and running backs coach Kirby Wilson left to become the Minnesota Vikings new running backs coach.
