NFL News : Coach Tomlin says says staff won't change

Coach Tomlin says says staff won't change

But things have changed before

Published on by The Football Feed in NFL News

As painful as the loss to Jacksonville was, the Steelers were still one of the top teams in the league in 2017 and Coach Tomlin told his defensive staff they will all return in 2018.

"Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has told his defensive coaches he is not going to make any changes and intends to bring that portion of his staff back next season, per a team source."

Except recent history suggests it's still up in the air

"But as former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians discovered after the 2011 season, that could also change.

Arians was told by Tomlin on two separate occasions after a season-ending playoff loss to the Denver Broncos he would be re-hired as offensive coordinator. But that all changed several days later when the Rooneys declined to offer him a new contract, announcing he had retired."
