Karl Dunbar

Defensive Line Coach

College: Louisiana State University

Experience: 16 years


Karl Dunbar is entering his fifth season as the Steelers' defensive line coach and his 16th year as a defensive line coach in the National Football League. He was hired by the Steelers on February 8, 2018.

With the guidance of Dunbar, who works with the edge rushers, outside linebacker T.J. Watt became the seventh Steeler (eighth time) in franchise history to be named NFL Defensive Player of the Year, finishing the season with a league-leading 22.5 sacks and 21 TFL (tied with Nick Bosa). Veteran defensive tackle Cameron Heyward joined Watt for the pair's fifth consecutive Pro Bowl trip under Dunbar's tutelage.
