New Steelers offensive line assistant coach Adrian Klemm played seven seasons in the NFL.

Shaun Sarrett will get some help coaching the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line.

Sarrett, promoted from an offensive assistant when veteran offensive line coach Mike Munchak joined the Denver Broncos, will be aided by Adrian Klemm, who was hired Tuesday to serve as the team’s assistant offensive line coach.

Klemm, a former offensive lineman with the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers, will assume the role held by Sarrett before Munchak’s departure.

Klemm has nine years of experience coaching offensive lines in college. His most recent stay was with UCLA from 2012-16 where he served as associate head coach/run game coordinator/offensive line coach.

Klemm was a graduate assistant at SMU in 2008 and served as that school’s offensive line coach/recruiting coordinator from 2009-11.

Klemm was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2000 draft, four rounds before New England picked quarterback Tom Brady. Klemm played seven NFL seasons and won three Super Bowls with the Patriots.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
