Steelers' Munchak declines second interview with Cards
Arizona went 8-8 in 2017 as star running back David Johnson missed virtually the entire season with a wrist injury. Munchak, 57, has been the Steelers' offensive line coach since 2014.

After making an unsuccessful attempt to defend a dunk by Chicago big man Robin Lopez, Bell landed awkwardly on his left leg and collapsed in a heap. With Bell staying on the ground, both the Warriors' medical staff and Bell's teammates came to his help. After being attended to by team trainers, Bell would be taken off of the United Center court and to the locker room in a wheelchair. X-rays were negative and an MRI is scheduled for Thursday. It became clear very quickly that something was seriously wrong with the first-year forward, who got the start in place of the resting Draymond Green, when he couldn't get back to his feet after hitting the deck. Should Bell have to miss an extended period of time, Looney and JaVale McGee are among the front court players who will have the opportunity to earn more playing time.
