Steelers could replace Matt Canada with Jim Caldwell
Jim Caldwell would be a fascinating choice assuming he wants the Steelers top play-caller job. He has a long history of success in the NFL as a coach on many levels. He started as the Colts quarterback coach under Tony Dungy. When Tony Dungy retired, he was promoted to the head coaching position. That was in 2008. The Colts eventually fired him in 2011; however, he was a scapegoat to some degree in that Peyton Manning missed most of the season to injuries.
Thirteen days later, he became the Ravens quarterback coach, and they beat the 49ers in Superbowl XLVII. The following season he became the Lion’s head coach. In 2018 the Lions fired him after a poor season which proved to be contentious at best. Considering his successor, Matt Patricia performed worse. Considering he was the first Lions Coach to ever leave the team with a winning record since Joe Schmidt.
After leaving the Lions, he has had several interviews for head coaching vacancies in the NFL. He has interviewed with the Packers and Browns, Brian Flores hired him as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach, but before the season started, he took a leave of absence to address health issues.
The short of everything is that he comes with an excellent resume, and the Steelers would be hard-pressed to find a better candidate to run their offense instead of Matt Canada. The larger question is would he take an offensive coordinator position over a head coaching position?
