If there’s one coach that has no business getting a promotion, it’s Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada but for some reason that’s exactly what happened.

According to The Score’s Jordan Shultz, Canada will be promoted to a “prominent role” with the Steelers offense which includes working more with quarterback Kenny Pickett all while Canada to continue to be the play-caller.

The move comes a week after the Steelers fanbase chanted “Fire Canada” during the team’s Week 2 game against the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football.

Instead, Mike Tomlin has decided to lean more heavily into Canada moving forward, with the belief that it’ll somehow lead to more success for the Steelers offense.
