According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Twitter, offensive assistant Shaun Sarrett will get to interview for the vacant offensive line coach job.
#Steelers interviewing offensive assistant Shaun Sarrett to be offensive line coach. Only natural. He's been doing it for couple months.

Dulac had reported after Jack Bicknell Jr. was fired last week after just one season that Sarrett had an expanded role in coaching the Steelers offensive line during the second half of the year while Bicknell’s role diminished.
Sarrett just finished his second season with the Steelers as the team’s offensive assistant after spending the previous three seasons as the offensive quality control and offensive line assistant coach for Duke University. During his college years, Sarrett played guard for Kent State University and was a three-year letterman there.
This could be a courtesy interview for Sarrett as the Steelers are still expected to talk to Carolina Panthers assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown at the conclusion of their season.
