PITTSBURGH -- A person familiar with the hire says former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak will join the Pittsburgh Steelers as an offensive line coach.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet official.

The hiring was first reported by the Houston Chronicle.

Munchak was fired by the Titans on Jan. 4 after leading the Titans to a 22-26 record in three seasons.

He interviewed with the Steelers last week to replace Jack Bicknell Jr., who was fired earlier this month. Munchak also spoke to Cleveland and Detroit about their head coaching vacancies.

The 53-year-old spent 12 years in the NFL as an offensive guard and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was standout in college at Penn State.
