'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Peters Township first-year football coach Rich Piccinini said Sunday that former Steelers linebacker Jason Gildon will be hired Monday night as an assistant football coach, pending a vote of the district's school board.

Piccinini said Gildon will coach the defensive line.

"He brings instant credibility," Piccinini said.

Gildon, 38, played 10 seasons with the Steelers (1994-2003) and recorded a team-record 77 career sacks. The talented pass rusher made three Pro Bowls (2000-02) and was named All-Pro in 2001.

Gildon, a Wexford resident, has met with the Peters Township players, Piccinini said.

"When he first got there, he was former Steeler Jason Gildon," Piccinini said. "That's how the kids saw him. But he's turned into Coach Gildon. That 'wow' factor is going to die down, and they'll listen to him as a coach."
