    I hope Ron's sitting down when he reads this.

    I like spur of the moment type words.

    Yes Cowher fired him as an OC because he wasn't so good at that with the team we had. Couldn't seem to call plays to our strengths at the time. I think RAY has come a ways since those days and hopefully he can continue on with the STEELERS wide receivers not missing a beat.

    Guy has a long history around offense and receivers. He stayed in the league a long time even if his stints at OC weren't as successful as he would have liked. He brings a veteran coach presence to a young group and his resume is strong enough to garner instant respect. Seems like a good move and darn good of him to step in given he retired after 2015. I would guess the plan is to have him for the season so the team can do a full search spring of 2020.

    Sad circumstances, but welcome back coach Sherman. He will be fine.

    Welcome back Coach Sherman. Just out of curiosity,what does a positional coach make in the NFL? In general of course,I am sure it varies by different personal.

    It sure is a nice gesture of him to come out of retirement and lead these young men. I was just thinking about it and there's not a receiver over 26 in that room, is there? He's also lost one of his own children, so he knows tragedy.

    Welcome back coach and wish you all the best.

    Evidently not enough to buy you & your wife's drinks down town....... OH wait, that was OC "fighting" Todd's pay.

    I'm not sure what the pay sale is around the league.

    Haley was 10x the OC that Sherman was. Seriously.

    It is a bit telling that Sherman was only OC for 1 season with the Steelers before being fired, but I've heard he's done well with wide receiver coaching jobs throughout the NFL.

    Coffee for the Head Coach

    How much do NFL position coaches make?
    Only three years ago, the average salary for assistant coaches was in the $150,000-$175,000 range. There are position coaches now pulling in $400,000 or more per season.

    So did I, but it's quite likely he refused.

    Sherman was a bad OC and has been out of coaching for a while. The game has changed a bit too. I get the Steeler had to find a replacement quickly, but inactive and fired in one season doesn’t inspire confidence.
