Coach Mike Tomlin continues to interview candidates for openings on his staff, which he reduced by one after the Steelers officially announced the hiring of a new special teams coach.

The Post-Gazette reported early this week that the hiring of Al Everest was imminent and the Steelers announced it today. Everest, 59, was fired by the San Francisco 49ers after the season. Tomlin also interviewed Bobby April for the job but he instead was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tomlin continues his search for a wide receivers coach, a possible secondary coach and a defensive assistant. He interviewed former Steelers linebacker Jerry Olsavsky for the job of defensive assistant today, after interviewing former Steelers linebacker Earl Holmes on Wednesday.
