Steelers lose another coach, others drawing interest from other teams

Fans around the globe who follow the Pittsburgh Steeles know changes in the coaching staff are inevitable. When the team fired Matt Canada mid-season, and Mike Tomlin announced the team will be filling that vacancy from outside the organization, there was guaranteed coaching turnover in 2024.

But what most didn’t see was the team losing coaches before those big decisions were made. The latest coach, following Offensive Assistant Coach Glenn Thomas, is Gerald Alexander leaving for the Las Vegas Raiders to coach their safeties. He spent the last two season as the assistant defensive backs coach, and now is looking for a new opportunity.

This per Cameron Wolfe:

While Alexander isn’t the first coach to leave, there might be another coach right behind him. That would be quarterbacks coach turned play caller Mike Sullivan. With the Steelers looking outside the organization to fill their vacancy at offensive coordinator, Sullivan is getting looks from two teams with the potential of getting the job of offensive coordinator.

Those two teams are the Las Vegas Raiders and the New Orleans Saints.

Sullivan getting an offensive coordinator job would be a big-time promotion for him, but you also have to wonder if he’d be open to returning as the quarterbacks coach if the new coordinator would want him and he doesn’t get the promotion he desires. A lot can change, and most hinges on the hiring of the next offensive coordinator.

With Sullivan potentially leaving it would be the tip of the iceberg as it pertains to the potential changes on the offensive coaching staff once a new coordinator is hired. Who that is, and when it will happen, is anyone’s guess.
