You may have heard the name Jerrod Johnson before, and that is likely due to his playing career. When it comes to Johnson’s career, he has certainly been around as a player. He has played around the NFL, including a short stint with the Steelers in 2012, the CFL and even the UFL. When his playing career ended in 2016, he began his coaching career. He joined the Bill Walsh Diversity Program in 2017 and was with the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts in 2017 and 2018. He was promoted to offensive quality control coach with the Colts on February 17, 2020, and got a job with the Minnesota Vikings as the new assistant Quarterbacks coach. In 2023 he was the quarterbacks coach for the Houston Texans, doing a great job with the extremely talented C.J. Stroud.
The Steelers interviewing Johnson can be added to them interviewing Thomas Brown, and also rumored to be interested in both Zac Robinson and Kliff Kingsbury.
