really liked him at Brown and has been snatched from the Steelers, he is a good guy and probably will do well at the heights. WHIPPLE DEPARTURE A HUGE LOSS FOR STEELERS Reacting to the news that Steelers quarterbacks coach Mark Whipple is heading to Boston College, a league source tells us that Whipple's departure is going to hurt. At least PFT says he is: http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm "He's a great coach and a big loss for the Steelers," said the source. "One of the best coaches nobody talks about. He'll be an NFL head coach in five to seven years." To get there, he'll have to prove himself at Boston College, in the same way that Tom Coughlin did before becoming the coach of the Jaguars. Regardless, the Steelers will be facing even more challenges for the rest of the season. "What has been a bad year for Big Ben has become a really bad year," said the source.
