It did not take Mike Tomlin long to name a new coordinator. He's promoted from within.
Fichtner and Ben Roethlisberger, apparently, have a great relationaship so it's not surprising. Ben felt he performed better when Fichtner was on the sidelines even as the QB coach.
"Fichtner, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, was a standout football player at Meadville Area Senior High School. He chose to attend Purdue University, playing defensive back for the Boilermakers. His father is Ross Fichtner, who played quarterback for Purdue, and then played defensive back for the Cleveland Browns."
