With just a couple of weeks until the start of the regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers shook up their coaching staff.

The Steelers parted ways with special teams coordinator Al Everest, NFL Network contributor and FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer reported Thursday.

The Steelers later confirmed Everest's departure in a news release.

"We are continually evaluating our coaching staff and support staff, and we have decided to go in a different direction with respect to the coaching of our special teams," coach Mike Tomlin said in the announcement. "I want to thank Al for his contributions and efforts, and I wish him well in the future."

Everest was set to begin his third season as the Steelers' special teams coordinator. He previously held the position for the San Francisco 49ers, where he was fired following the 2009 season.
