Steelers could replace Matt Canada with Bobby Slowik
Bobby Slowik would be a peculiar addition to the Steelers, yet it could be a selection that could pay dividends. He did serve as an assistant head coach for the Commanders at one point. However, his career with the 49ers proves more interesting as a coach. After leaving the Commanders, he became an analyst for Pro Football Focus until 2016, then joined the 49ers in 2017.
What’s interesting is that in 2017 and 2018, he was the 49er’s defensive quality control coach. In 2019 and 2020, he became an offensive assistant. And then, in 2022, he became the 49er’s Offensive passing game coordinator. What is an offensive passing game coordinator? Well, it’s essentially a shared coordinator position with Chris Foerster, who handles aspects of the rushing game.
Perhaps why considering Slowik might not be a bad idea. He has handled half of the 49er’s offense, and you can not deny he has not had success with the receivers the 49ers have, such as Brandon Aiyuk, Samuel Deebo, and George Kittle.
His success in San Francisco could make one salivate at what he could do with Kenny Pickett, George Pickens, and Pat Freiermuth. That will be a decision the Steelers have to make, but he could be a valuable addition to the Steelers.
