Steelers Should Consider Hiring this Man as a New WR Coach

Pittsburgh Steelers former wide receiver and legendary figure, Hines Ward recently experienced a couple of disappointments that might open the door for a potential return to the organization in a different capacity.

While Ward missed out on being named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2024, he also saw his head coaching role with the San Antonio Brahmas in the XFL come to an end.

 

 

This unexpected turn of events could present a golden opportunity for the Steelers to tap into his expertise by bringing him back as their wide receivers coach.

Ward’s exclusion from the list of finalists for the class of 2024 in the Pro Football Hall of Fame was met with disappointment by many, including Steeler Nation. Ward’s remarkable career, which spanned 14 seasons with the Steelers, featured numerous accolades, including four Pro Bowl selections, two Super Bowl championships and a Super Bowl MVP. His contributions to the franchise are etched in the team’s history, making him a beloved figure in Pittsburgh.

 

 

Despite his impressive resume, Ward’s omission from the Hall of Fame finalists was a bitter pill to swallow for those who cherished his time as a Steeler. However, this disappointment didn’t end there for Ward.

On the heels of this Hall of Fame letdown, James Larsen broke the news that Ward would be replaced as the head coach of the Brahmas, with Wade Phillips assuming the role. While this change may have been unexpected and disappointing for Ward, it might just be the silver lining that benefits the Steelers.

 

 

 

 

The Steelers hired Frisman Jackson as their wide receivers coach in February 2022, following the decision to not renew the contract of Ike Hilliard. While the team’s decision to retain or part ways with Jackson remains uncertain, the idea of bringing Ward back into the coaching fold is intriguing.
