Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert confirmed on Wednesday at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine that no coaching staff changes have been made this offseason.

Kozora: The Case For Danny Smith

I know, I know. Here’s crazy Alex trying to defend the indefensible again. But hey, Danny Smith is still here. And presumably will be for the 2017 season, provided he doesn’t go the way of Al Everest. That idea will probably make you race to the comments section and hey, I get…
