The Steelers bring on board a fresh Passing-Game Coordinator.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expanding their offensive coaching staff, bringing in former Los Angeles Chargers coach Tom Arth as the passing-game coordinator, as reported by KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson. Following interviews earlier in the week alongside other passing-game coordinator candidates, Arth has secured the role, maintaining his position as a pass-game specialist, a role he previously held with the Chargers.

Arth embarked on his NFL coaching journey in 2022, serving as the pass-game specialist for the Chargers. Before his NFL stint, he held head coaching positions at Akron (2019-2021), Chattanooga (2017-2018), and John Carroll (2013-2016).

Having played as a quarterback from 2003 to 2008, Arth gained experience in various professional leagues, including the Canadian Football League, European League, and the Arena League, with his lengthiest tenure with the Indianapolis Colts from 2003 to 2005.

The Steelers are set to retain quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan, while Arth assumes the role of passing-game coordinator. In collaboration with new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, Arth will contribute to gameplan formulation and aid in the development of quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends. The objective is to enhance the performance of an offense that demonstrated improvement through the air in the later stages of the 2023 season.
