Steelers hire Jack Bicknell Jr. as offensive line coach

Jack Bicknell was named the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach replacing Sean Kugler, who left the Steelers following the 2012 season to become head coach at UTEP via the Associated Press..

Bicknell spent last season as the offensive line coach for the Kansas City Chiefs and began his NFL coaching career as an assistant line coach with the New York Giants from 2009-11.

In 2007, while coaching at Boston College, his offensive line ranked first in the ACC in sacks against, allowing just 22 sacks all season. His offensive line also paved the way for an ACC-leading 5,951 yards of total offense and a record breaking season by quarterback Matt Ryan.

Bicknell also oversaw the development of Anthony Castonzo, the first true freshman to start on the BC offensive line since 1997 and a member of the All-ACC freshman team.
