The Steelers hired Jack Bicknell Jr. as their new offensive line coach, the team announced Tuesday.

Bicknell spent last season as the Chiefs’ O-line coach following three seasons as the assistant offensive line coach for the Giants.

“I am excited to have Jack join the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. “Jack has a tremendous football pedigree and the background we were looking for to guide our offensive line in the upcoming years. I look forward to having him join our staff as we prepare for the upcoming 2013 season.”

“The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the greatest franchises in the NFL," said Bicknell, Jr. "The Steelers have great tradition, great ownership and great leadership from the top to the bottom. For me to be able to come to a situation like this, it is really a dream come true."

Bicknell replaces Sean Kugler, who left to be the head coach of UTEP.
