Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell met with Steelers officials on Friday, sources confirm to Inside Pittsburgh Sports.
Caldwell is under consideration for the Steelers offensive coordinator position but how serious of a candidate he is remains to be seen
Caldwell spent yesterday and this morning in Pittsburgh, but Caldwell left town this afternoon without being offered a contract or terms being discussed between the Steelers and Caldwell's rep Dennis Coleman, according to a source close to the situation.
The SteelersÃ‚Â had beenÃ‚Â expected to interview 2-3 candidates outside the organization. Quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner remains the leading in-house candidate and is the direction Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger hopes the Steelers go.
While Caldwell met with Steelers brass Friday afternoon, it's also believed he might haveÃ‚Â spent some time with head coach Mike Tomlin again this morning before he departed town. Mark Kaboly of the Tribune-Review mentioned on twitter today that a source was "95%" sure that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was seen having breakfast with Caldwell Saturday morning at the Omni William Penn. We cannot' confirm that Tomlin and Caldwell had breakfast this morning following yesterday's meeting with team officials, but it seems to add up as Caldwell was staying at the William Penn and checked out late this morning.
