The Pittsburgh Steelers have hired a new wide receivers coach in Richard Mann, who will be replacing Scottie Montgomery, the team's former assistant who accepted an advanced role with Duke University.
Mann may be a stranger to some in Steeler Nation, but he is familiar with the area, and Mike Tomlin. Mann was a graduate from Aliquippa High School, and has been enshrined in the Aliquippa and Beaver County Halls-of-Fame. Mann and Tomlin worked together with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-2005. Mann actually stayed with the organization through 2009 as a receivers coach, and also as assistant head coach in his final year.
Prior to Tampa Bay, Mann's career also held the same position with the Washington Redskins (2001), Kansas City Chiefs (1999-2000), Baltimore Ravens (1997-98), New York Jets (1994-96, also coached TE's in 1995), Cleveland Browns (1985-1993, also coached TE's in 1995) and the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts (1982-84). Prior to the NFL, Mann also coached college football with Louisville and Arizona State, Mann's alma-mater.
