Steelers lose OL coach Mike Munchak to Broncos

The Broncos are filling out their coaching staff.

Denver announced Monday that it has hired Mike Munchak as its new offensive line coach. He previously served in the same role with the Steelers from 2014-18.

The Steelers’ offensive line allowed Ben Roethlisberger to be sacked 24 times in 2018 under Munchak. Pittsburgh also had one of the NFL’s premiere rushing attacks.

Munchak also previously worked for the Titans and was the organization’s head coach from 2011-13. He will join a Broncos team with a promising young running back in Phillip Lindsay that finished 2018-19 with a 6-10 record.

The Broncos named Vic Fangio their new head coach last week. Munchak also reportedly interviewed for that role.
