Report: Steelers to Hire former Falcons Assistant Chris Morgan as Assistant OL Coach



Chris Morgan

The Steelers will hire former Atlanta Falcons offensive line coach Chris Morgan to be the team’s assistant offensive line coach, according to a report by Dan Duggan and Mark Kaboly of The Athletic.

Morgan had been with the Falcons since 2015, but was not retained by the team following the 2020 season. He will serve under Steelers offensive line coach Adrian Klemm, who was promoted from assistant offensive line coach after Shaun Sarrett was not retained.

Before his time in Atlanta, Morgan was the assistant offensive line coach for the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, the Washington Redskins from 2011-13 and Oakland Raiders from 2009-10. He coached the Seahawks and Falcons to the Super Bowl following the 2014 and 2016 regular seasons.

Morgan has worked under head coach Dan Quinn and offensive coordinators Kyle Shanahan, Steve Sarkisian and Dirk Koetter in Atlanta, Pete Carroll and Darrell Bevell in Seattle, Mike Shanahan and Kyle Shanahan in Washington and Tom Cable, Hue Jackson and Ted Tollner in Oakland.

A native of Killeen, Texas, Morgan played college football at Colorado. With the hiring of Morgan, tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts and quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan, and the promotions of Matt Canada to offensive coordinator and Klemm to offensive line coach, the Steelers have filled their offensive staff vacancies.

The team still has not replaced secondary coach Tom Bradley.
