Posted Jul 1, 2014

A decade-by-decade look at the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Succeeding Jock Sutherland, John Michelosen was head coach for the 1948-51 seasons, compiling a 20-26-2 record. In 1952 Joe Bach returned for his second stint with the Steelers, having coached the team previously in 1935-36. The Steelers became the last team to abandon the single wing for the T-formation in 1952.

Bach resigned for health reasons following the 1954 season and was replaced by assistant coach Walt Kiesling, who had been the Steelers’ head coach twice previously. Kiesling’s three stints covered the 1939-40, 1941-44, and1954-56 campaigns.
