UTC's Tom Arth adept at hiring upwardly mobile assistants | Chattanooga  Times Free Press
Tom Arth will coach quarterbacks for the Steelers. Arth, who was interviewed by Pittsburgh yesterday, was the Los Angeles Chargers’ passing game specialist under Brandon Staley the previous season.

This happens right after Zach Azzanni, a former Jets assistant, was named by the Steelers as their new wide receivers coach. In the same capacity, Pittsburgh also welcomed back Mike Sullivan as the quarterbacks coach.

Earlier reports imitially indicated that Arth’s role would be as the Steelers’ pass game coordinator, but both Gerry Dulac and Mike DeFabo have come out and said those reports were inaccurate.

Supporters wanted the Steelers to hire new personnel this off-season by looking outside the company. They deserve credit for what they’ve done. This is the third external hire in the current hiring cycle; Arthur Smith, the offensive coordinator, is by far the largest.

Before accepting the position at Akron from 2019 to 21, Arth was as head coach at John Carroll from 2013 to 2016 and Chattanooga from 2017 to 2018. In 2022, he was named a Chargers pass game specialist.
