LARRY ZIERLEIN REPORTEDLY FIRED



Today's reportedly-fired Steeler assistant coach is O-Line coach Larry Zierlein, as reported by National Football Post and Mike Lombardi of NFL Network.

Zierlein, who has been with the Steelers since Mike Tomlin's first season in 2007, has coached at various levels of football since 1970, including gigs in Cleveland and Buffalo in the NFL, and Houston, LSU, Tulane, and Cincinnati in college. It was at Cincinnati in 1999-00 where Zierlein initially coached with Tomlin, who was in charge of the defensive backs.

Unfortunately, Zierlein will be most remembered for two things during his stint in Pittsburgh: a much-maligned offensive line and a well-publicized e-mail gaffe in 2007.

Meanwhile, talk of yesterday's Ken Laird report on the pending termination of Bruce Arians continues to be strong. Steel City Insider's Jim Wexell reports that he's been told Arians himself was the source of the leak.

So until next time, stay tuned for more of "As the Tomlin Staff Turns".
