Report: Steelers To Interview Former Robert Morris Lineman Hank Fraley For OL Coach Opening
The Steelers are expected to interview Hank Fraley for their vacant offensive line coach position, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
Fraley, who spent the past two seasons as coach with the Lions, is a Robert Morris alum and started his professional football career by signing with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in 2000. Fraley was waived before the 2000 season and then signed with the Eagles, where he spent five years. Fraley retired in 2010 after spending time with the Browns and Rams.
The #Steelers are interviewing Hank Fraley for their offensive line coach job Thursday, per source. Fraley — a onetime Robert Morris standout who originally signed with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in 2000 — held the same job with the #Lions last season.

Following the end of his playing days, Fraley embarked on career as a coach, which has included stops at the University of Sam Diego, San Jose State, the Minnesota Vikings, UCLA, and Detroit Lions.
His work with the Lions this year was superb. They had a lot of shuffling in that lineup and guys got in there and plugged in with ease. Tyrell Crosby began to look like a legitimate starter. And rookie Jonah Jackson had a good year.
All testaments to his coaching ability.

The Steelers are looking to replace Shaun Sarrett, who along with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner, was not retained last week following the team’s Wild Card Round loss to Cleveland
