The Steelers didn’t have to look far to find their new offensive line coach, hiring Shaun Sarrett, who just completed his seventh season with the team.

Sarrett was an offensive assistant with the team from 2012-17, working mainly with the offensive line, and then promoted to assistant offensive line coach for the 2018 season. For the second-straight year three Steelers offensive linemen were voted to the Pro Bowl in David DeCastro, Maurkice Pouncey and Alejandro Villanueva.

“We are excited to promote Shaun to coach our offensive line,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “We have full confidence in his coaching abilities, and we look forward to him using his experience as he has been preparing for this opportunity to take on the challenges that will be presented to him.”

Sarrett has also assisted the offensive coaching staff with game preparation, video analysis and opponent scouting.

Sarrett came to the Steelers from Duke University (2008-11) where he was the offensive quality control coach and offensive line assistant coach. He also spent three seasons coaching at Marshall University (2005-07), where he earned his master’s degree. Sarrett begane his coaching career at Streetboro (Ohio) High School, coaching both the offensive and defensive lines in 2004.

The Beckley, WV native played at Kent State, where he was a three-year letterman at guard.

Sarrett replaces Mike Munchak, who left to become the offensive line coach of the Denver Broncos.
