Former Steeler Carnell Lake interviews for Mike Tomlin's staff
Former Steelers great Carnell Lake is interviewing today for the one significant opening on coach Mike Tomlin's staff.
Lake, who played safety for the Steelers from 1989-1998, is meeting with Tomlin and the Steelers about coaching the team's defensive backs.
The Steelers have had an opening for a defensive backs coach since the middle of February when they lost Ray Horton. Horton, who had been coaching with the Steelers since 2004, left to become the Arizona Cardinals' defensive coordinator.
Lake, a four-time Pro Bowler while with the Steelers, spent a season as a defensive backs coach at UCLA in 2009. He left the position at his alma mater because of family reasons.
