Steelers hire Faulkner as running backs coach

PITTSBURGH (AP) Eddie Faulkner is the new running backs coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The team announced Faulkner's hiring on Thursday. Faulkner replaces James Saxon, whose contract was not renewed after the Steelers finished 9-6-1 and missed the playoffs.

Faulkner comes to the Steelers from North Carolina State, where he spent the last six years as tight ends/running backs coach and special teams coordinator. Faulkner worked closely with Pittsburgh rookie running back Jaylen Samuels, who caught a school-record 202 passes during his career with the Wolfpack.
