The Pittsburgh Steelers are actively seeking candidates for their offensive coordinator position, conducting interviews and adding potential names to their list. One notable figure to watch is former Atlanta Falcons head coach Arthur Smith.

Since parting ways with the Falcons, Smith’s name has become highly sought-after in the market for offensive coordinator roles. Reportedly, as many as seven teams have expressed interest in securing his services. With the Steelers expanding their search, it wouldn’t be surprising if Smith’s name emerges as a potential candidate.

Smith, previously the offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans, achieved notable success, particularly with running back Derrick Henry. Given Pittsburgh’s possible interest, Smith’s experience in orchestrating a strong running game could align with the Steelers’ preferences.

Additionally, the 41-year-old coach has connections within the Steelers organization from his time with the Titans. He collaborated with respected figures such as former Pittsburgh offensive line coach Mike Munchak, defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, and head coaches Mike Mularkey and Ken Whisenhunt.

As the Steelers attend the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, for scouting purposes, the search for offensive coordinators is expected to continue. Whether it happens before, during, or after the Senior Bowl, Arthur Smith might emerge as a name on Pittsburgh’s radar.
