Amidst the struggling offense of the Pittsburgh Steelers, former quarterback and Super Bowl-winning offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich has expressed interest in aiding the team in finding its rhythm once again.
Leftwich, who served as Ben Roethlisberger’s backup in Pittsburgh, and later as Tom Brady’s offensive coordinator during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl run, has reportedly made inquiries about a potential role with the Steelers.
In a report by The Athletic, it was revealed that Leftwich had reached out to the Steelers earlier this season, leveraging his extensive experience in the NFL.
At 43 years old, Leftwich is currently seeking a new opportunity after his departure from the Buccaneers in January.

Leftwich has served as an NFL offensive coordinator for five seasons and has seven years of experience as an NFL assistant coach, which also includes two seasons as a quarterbacks coach.
Before his venture into coaching, Leftwich boasted a commendable nine-year career as an NFL quarterback.
His standout moment came in 2008 when he took over for an injured Roethlisberger and led the Steelers to a memorable win over Washington on a Monday night.
Leftwich’s recent interest in the Steelers likely comes at a critical juncture for the team’s offense, which has struggled to find its stride in the current season.
Current OC Matt Canada is public enemy #1 in Pittsburgh and Steelers fans have long-wanted him gone.
Should the Steelers consider bring Leftwich on-board???
