Apparently he will also stay the QB coach, per the official website:

When's the last time a Steeler player won a standoff against the coaching staff/front office because of a coach they disliked?

This whole chain of events basically says to Ben: You were right; we were wrong. Please don't leave. We're sorry.

I like to see a statement by Haley.

That would be fun.

Which maybe rekindles another interesting debate.....was Ben being intentionally lazy, disinterested and checked-out early in the year because of Haley?

You think Ben just gave Haley the rope to hang himself.....and then EMR/Tomlin finally said "ok, Haley's gone - do whatever, call whatever you want"? Because, coincidentally, things changed dramatically about the time Haley went upstairs and Fitchner came down.

Ben never checked out. His play was stellar all season. Even the Jax 5 int game he was still throwing darts and hitting the bull’s eye.

The one comment made me laugh. “Congratulations Mr. Fitchner. Please add QB sneak to playbook”

I agree he wasn't nearly as bad as many here claimed. But his throws WERE off, a little, early in the year. And there can be a number of reasons for that. But not putting in the film work, maybe not audibling when he should....playing just well enough to win. Interesting theory for a "dumb" guy who appears to have strategized a way to get Haley out.

But I'm talking about how often they ran the U offense the first half of the year in contrast with the second half. What I meant was Ben said "ok, I'll run the plays you call....I'll rubber stamp your gameplan....and watch you hang yourself".

Now, just get Tomlin the hell out of the way - of the offense at least - and let Ben and Randy put up 40 pts a game with all the weapons they have as they are used properly.

Tomlin needs to stop worrying about letting the dumb "grown men" be their own man. Some can handle it, like Haden, Watt, Vince, Davis and the DL guys, but some can't. Guys like Burns, Bud and Mitchell need to have a short leash, because they're to dumb/stubborn to make the right choices on their own. Hell, Mitchell just needs to be gone.
