Power Fire Siegfried, Hire Former Steeler As Offensive Coordinator

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) -- The Pittsburgh Power fired head coach Chris Siegfried Monday.

The Power are just 2-8 this season. They went 11-17 under Siegfried, the only head coach since the organization came into existence last year.

In turn, defensive coordinator Derek Stingley has been named interim head coach. Former Steelers quarterback Mike Tomczak has been hired as the team's new offensive coordinator, replacing Siegfried, who controlled the play calling.

The Power have lost five games in a row, capped by a 43-37 home loss to Kansas City Saturday night.
