Randy Fichtner enters his first season as the Steelers offensive coordinator in 2018 after spending the previous eight seasons the team’s quarterbacks and three prior as the team’s wide receivers coach. Fichtner, who will remain the quarterbacks coach for the Steelers, was hired by Head Coach Mike Tomlin on January 29, 2007.
In Fichtner’s eight seasons (2010-17) as the team’s quarterbacks coach, Ben Roethlisberger has totaled some very impressive numbers. Over that span, he has thrown for 31,763 yards with 202 touchdowns for a passer rating of 95.4, all of which rank in the top-10 in the NFL. Roethlisberger eclipsed 3,500 passing yards in six and 20 touchdown passes in seven of Fichtner’s eight years coaching the quarterbacks in Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger has also been selected to the Pro Bowl five times during that span, and he has earned Pro Bowl honors in each of the past four seasons (2014-17).
