The Steelers will not have their offensive line coach for the final two games of the 2021 regular season. While it was reported that Steelers offensive line coach Adrian Klemm was going to finish out the year, it does not appear that is happening.
According to a report by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, Klemm spoke with Mike Tomlin on Monday, and is being let out of his job in order to go to Oregon effective immediately.

Not only is Klemm heading to Eugene to become the offensive line coach, but he will also be the run game coordinator and assistant head coach on top of that. With Klemm gone, it would seem that assistant offensive line coach Chris Morgan will take over the duties for the rest of the season.
The Steelers will now be searching for their third offensive line coach in as many years. At a position will plenty of young talent that is in the organization and that will be coming in soon, this is a hire they will have to hit on if their rebuild is to be successful.
