The Steelers may be without an offensive coordinator here shortly.  Bruce Arians is rumored to not be returning next season.  No one knows whether it is retirement or if Arians is being let go just yet.  Most think it is the former.  Arians has talked about retiring before for health reasons.

I was always 50/50 on Arians.  I like his scheme and what we could do with this offense but it never completely gelled.  His play calling was my biggest issue.  Teams knew what was coming just by the way we lined up.  Even Phil Simms during the playoff game was calling out plays before the Steelers would run them.  We also struggled in the Red Zone.  That was always hard to deal with.

Arians did bring this team to a new level though.  He will be missed.  Especially by Ben Roethlisberger.  These two had a great relationship.  Ben had his best seasons under Arians.  They did a lot together.

As this was a surprise I will look through today and see what I can find for an offensive coordinator out there.  The first name that pops in my mind though is Todd Haley.  With Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers receivers Haley could do some big things here.  If the Steelers want him they better work fast though as Haley will not last on the market long.
