Rooney: Steelers' late push led to decision to retain Canada

PITTSBURGH (AP) Art Rooney II wants the Pittsburgh Steelers to score more points. He's confident the partnership between offensive coordinator Matt Canada and quarterback Kenny Pickett can make it happen.

The Steelers president pointed to Pittsburgh's surge to a 9-8 finish following a 2-6 start - a surge fueled by some late-game heroics from Pickett - as proof an offense that ranked 26th in points and 23rd in yards is heading in the right direction going into 2023.

That momentum is the main reason the Steelers opted to bring Canada back for a third season.
