Steelers select Randy Fichtner as offensive coordinator

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Steelers didn't look very far for offensive coordinator Todd Haley's replacement, promoting longtime quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner to the position on Thursday, four days after Pittsburgh's season ended with a divisional round playoff loss to Jacksonville.

The Steelers chose not to renew Haley's contract, opening the door for Fichtner to take over one of the league's most dynamic offenses. The 54-year-old Fichtner last called plays while serving as offensive coordinator at Memphis from 2001-06.

He joined Pittsburgh's coaching staff in 2007 as one of coach Mike Tomlin's initial hires. Fichtner spent three seasons as wide receivers coach before becoming the quarterbacks coach in 2010, where he developed a close rapport with Ben Roethlisberger.
