It's official. The six time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers have hired Carnell Lake to be the team's new defensive backs coach. The Steelers just confirmed the hire on the team's official Twitter account.
Lake replaces Roy Horton as the secondary coach after his departure to Arizona to coordinate the Cardinals' defense. Lake, who was a five time Pro Bowler during his ten year career with the Steelers, was the secondary coach at his alma mater, UCLA, in 2009. He re-signed after the season citing personal reasons.
We'll take some time to remember Lake's awesome career in Pittsburgh in the near future. For now we welcome the former Steelers legend back into the family. Go Steelers!
