The streets of Pittsburgh are eager with anticipation. There is no championship on the line, but instead, something that Steelers' fans have been waiting for for years.
Bruce Arians, the much maligned offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers, may not return next season.
Gerry Dulac, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, speculated that Arians might not return for the 2012 season, meaning that Mike Tomlin would have to bring in his first new coordinator since being named Steelers head coach in 2007.
While there has been no official word, it seems that Arians' not returning to the team next season is a strong possibility.
Arians has recently considered retirement and team president Art Rooney expressed concerns over the 21st-ranked scoring offense earlier this week. Now, more than ever, may be the time for Arians to move on.
Until there is official word, though, it is hard to say whether or not the Steelers offense will be under a new coach next season.
Here are some possible candidates for offensive coordinator.
