The Pittsburgh Steelers parted ways with special teams coach Al Everest on Thursday and now Bob Labriola reports via Twitter that assistant special teams coach Amos Jones will replace Everest. There has been no official word yet as to why Everest had been let go.
Jones is entering his sixth season with the Steelers after being hired in January of 2007. Prior to being hired by the Steelers, Jones spent three years at Mississippi State as the special teams/ linebackers coach (2004-05) and outside linebackers coach (2006). Prior to coaching at Mississippi State, Jones coached special teams and tight ends at James Madison University.
Jones also coached special teams and running backs from 1999-2002 at the University of Cincinnati.
