PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have fired
offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. after just one season.

on the line. Perennial Pro Bowl center Maurkice
Pouncey went down in the season opener with
a knee injury. Pittsburgh ended up using four
different players at the position, part of a unit
that used 10 different starting combinations
in 16 games.
Kelvin Beachum provided some stability at
left tackle, but former second-round picks Mike
Adams and Marcus Gilbert regressed. Pittsburgh finished
27th in the league in rushing and 29th in yards per carry.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was sacked 42 times,
though only 10 times over the final six games as the team
went to a no-huddle offense.
