Steelers President Art Rooney II held his annual end of season meeting with the media this afternoon at the UPMC-Rooney Sports Complex.
According to any article from our Steelers Insider Dale Lolley at Steelers.com, Rooney said with the improvements he saw the team make in the second half of the season, he feels encouraged about 2023.
"Obviously, we still have a lot of areas we need to improve on, but I liked the way the team kept fighting down the stretch and kept ourselves alive."
He also addressed the decision to keep Matt Canada on for another season as the team's offensive coordinator, and a big part of that is because of the development and progress of Kenny Pickett.
Rooney said, "They built a good working relationship. And so to kind of sort of start over again with a new offensive coordinator, could wind up back in the same situation again, where the first half of the season you're breaking into new coordinator, so, we just felt like there's enough there to build on that, we want to continue to keep that group together."
