The Steelers have reportedly found their replacement for the quarterbacks coach position after Matt Canada was promoted to offensive coordinator last month. According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Steelers are hiring Mike Sullivan as their quarterbacks coach.

Sullivan, 53, was the Giants' wide receivers coach from 2004-2009 and was their quarterbacks coach from 2010-2011 before the Buccaneers hired him as the offensive coordinator from 2012-2013. Sullivan returned to the Giants in 2015 and was the quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator from 2016-2017. Sullivan won two Super Bowls with the Giants.


Sullivan's last job in the NFL was with the Broncos as the quarterbacks coach in 2018 for one season. In 2020, he was hired as the director of recruiting at his alma mater Army.


Sullivan will be tasked with the responsibility of developing Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins, and possibly the heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger whoever that may be if it's not Rudolph, which is unlikely.


Mike Tomlin still needs to hire a secondary coach to replace Tom Bradley and he could be also looking for an assistant offensive line coach with promoting Adrian Klemm as the offensive line coach on Tuesday.
