Steelers interview former Panthers offensive coordinator Thomas Brown

Throughout the early stages of the offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have already been linked to a couple coaches who could be brought in for their vacancy at the offensive coordinator position. Earlier this week both Zac Robinson and Kliff Kingsbury were reportedly going to be targets for the Steelers, but the team is having their first interview of their hiring process.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the Steelers are interviewing former Carolina Panthers OC Thomas Brown:

Brown was a running back in the league, and eventually bounced around the college ranks as a coach until he was hired by the Los Angeles Rams as their running backs coach in 2020. In 2021 he was given the title of assistant head coach. After winning a Super Bowl the team moved him to tight ends coach as he retained the title of assistant coach.

Last season he left Los Angeles to be the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers. As you can imagine, things didn’t go well for Brown in Carolina. The team’s top draft pick of Bryce Young didn’t develop, and head coach Frank Reich was fired mid-season.

Will the Steelers be willing to give Brown another shot at play-calling duties? That has yet to be seen, and this is likely just the first interview of many for the Steelers as they look to hire their next offensive coordiantor.
