The Pittsburgh Steelers promoted Chris Morgan from assistant offensive line coach to offensive line coach on an interim basis on Monday, after former offensive line coach Adrian Klemm left the team to take the same position at Oregon.
The Steelers’ line will continue to be run by a coach with NFL experience. Morgan was the offensive line coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 2015-19.
Before that, he was the assistant offensive line coach for the 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.
So the Steelers will have a well-seasoned voice leading their offensive line through the final two weeks of the 2021 season, even with Klemm’s departure.a
