Steelers legend Rod Woodson has been hired as a coaching intern by the Denver Broncos for their 2014 training camp.

This is not the first time the Hall of Fame cornerback, who played 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1987 to 1997, has tried his hand at coaching.

He interned with the CIncinatti Bengals during their 2010 training camp, before being appointed as the Oakland Raiders defensive backs coach in 2011.

Unfortunately for Woodson,he wasn't retained when the new coaching regime, under head coach Dennis Allen, took over in 2012.

After sitting out a year Woodson joined the Steelers as a coaching intern for their 2013 training camp, and now he's wound up in Denver for their 2014 training camp.

Woodson is clealry commited and passionate about coaching, and it's no surprise teams keep looking to bring him in as an assistant. Being one of the best cornerbacks of all time, not many coaches can bring what Woodson can to the table in terms of experience and success playing the game.

It seems he would be an ideal candidate to bring in as an intern during training camp, much in the same vein as current Steelers assistant Joey Porter.

It remains to be seen however whether he can climb his way back into another defensive backs coach , or indeed whether he actually wants to.
