New Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin finalized his coaching staff today, signing six new assistants to join the six holdovers from former coach Bill Cowher's staff.

Heading the list is former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson, who will become the team's new quarterback coach, replacing Mark Whipple.

Also hired were offensive line coach Larry Zierlein, who coached last season with the Buffalo Bills; wide receivers coach Randy Fichtner, who was offensive coordinator at University of Memphis; running backs coach Kirby Wilson, who spent the past two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals; special teams coach Bob Ligashesky, who was with the St. Louis Rams since 2004; and special teams assistant Amos Jones, who held a similar position at Mississippi State.

Zierlein, Fichter, Wilson and Jones have each coached with Tomlin with other teams. Ligashesky, 44, is from McKees Rocks and played at Sto-Rox High School and IUP. Fichtner, 42, is a West Mifflin native.
