Pittsburgh Steelers hire Alabama defensive line coach Karl Dunbar for same role

Share

Mitchell, who has been with the Steelers for 24 seasons, will continue to serve as assistant head coach while also working with Dunbar. His Steelers connections don't stop there. He came to after coaching the Buffalo Bills defensive line in 2015. "This team drafted me out of college". He did however play three seasons in the National Football League, one with the New Orleans Saints (1993) and two with the Arizona Cardinals (1994-95).

Dunbar spent the last two seasons as defensive line coach at Alabama. Just to be back and the nostalgia of Pittsburgh, the mystic of Pittsburgh, the workman's mentality.

It's widely believed and reported that Alabama will promote current co-offensive coordinator Mike Locksley to replace Daboll and hire former Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos as quarterbacks coach, though neither move has been made official by the university. Mitchell, who was the first black player to play in Crimson Tide history, began his coaching career under Paul "Bear" Bryant in 1973. "I will lean on him to help me get to know the guys in the defensive line room and hopefully make it a great transition". His longest stint as an assistant coach was with the Minnesota Vikings from 2006-11.

John Mitchell, the Steelers' defensive line coach since 1994, will remain on the staff with the assistant head coach title he gained in 2007.

Most recently, Bradley spent the past three seasons with UCLA as the program's defensive coordinator. He returned to LSU in 2005 as the defensive line coach.
