It was announced this morning that Scottie Montgomery, the Steelers wide receivers coach, would be leaving the team to become the offensive coordinator at Duke. Montgomery coached wide receivers for four years at Duke, his alma mater, before taking the same position with the Steelers in 2010. Montgomery has helped mold Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. That is saying a lot as all three have played well in the NFL and all three were taken in the third round (Sanders and Wallace) or later (Brown was a sixth round pick). As soon as it became known that the wide receivers coach position was open the initial thought that many Steelers fans had was: Hines Ward. Ward worked some with the Georgia Bulldogs last year after retiring from the NFL and many believe that he could be a good NFL coach including myself. However, he has only been out of the league for one year and he has a very good job with NBC Sports. Ward’s current job is to talk, usually very little, about NFL game...

  • Hines could them being a receiver is just not catching passes, but putting a helmet on the opponent. It is called blocking and putting your opponent on their back. Defenses feared playing Hines because he was a difference maker especially when it came to physicality. Also what it takes to hake a hit over the middle. I think Hines would be a great coach.

Steelers 2013 Draft Analysis: Outside Linebacker – Early Look At The Rankings

Christopher DiMarino It's time to start looking at the positions that the Pittsburgh Steelers will look to draft in April.
