Mike Tomlin was named the 16th head coach in Pittsburgh Steelers history on January 22, 2007. Hired at the age of 34, Tomlin became only the third head coach hired by the Steelers since 1969.
In his 16 seasons as head coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tomlin has accomplished many things that have never been done in the team's storied history. A franchise known for stability at the head coaching position, Tomlin ranks among the League's longest-tenured active head coaches entering the 2023 season.
Matt Canada is in his second season as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator after being promoted to the position on January 25, 2021. He was hired by the Steelers as the quarterbacks coach on January 15, 2020, and spent one year in the role.
The offense saw an overhaul in personnel during Canada's first season at the helm, as nearly half of the players to start in Week 1 of 2021 weren't on the team the year prior. Rookies Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth were especially influential additions, as Harris set records for most rushes (307), rushing yards (1,200), receptions (74) and receiving yards (467) by a rookie running back in franchise history and led the NFL in touches (381). Freiermuth finished his debut season setting a franchise record for receptions by a rookie tight end (60) and receiving yards by a rookie tight end (497).
Teryl Austin is in his first season as the Steelers’ defensive coordinator. He was promoted after three seasons as the Steelers' senior defensive assistant/secondary on February 6, 2022. This marks his 19th year in the National Football League coaching ranks.
In 2021, six different Steelers' defensive backs were responsible for interceptions, while five forced at least one fumble. Pro Bowl safety Minkah Fitzpatrick led the team with 124 tackles on the season.
