Default Cardinals hire former Steeler Townsend as coach

Cardinals hire former Steeler Townsend as coach

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Thursday, February 10, 2011

Deshea Townsend is joining his former position coach in Arizona.

Townsend, who played cornerback for the Steelers from 1998-2009, has been hired to coach the Arizona Cardinals' defensive backs.

His addition to the Cardinals' coaching staff comes a day after Ray Horton became the team's defensive coordinator. Horton coached the Steelers' defensive backs for seven seasons before leaving for Arizona.

Townsend is now the sixth coach on Arizona's staff with Steelers ties, starting with head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

In 12 seasons with the Steelers, Townsend intercepted 21 passes. He played eight games for the Indianapolis Colts last season before getting waived in November.

Townsend's duties as co-host of an afternoon sports talk show on Triblive.com will end after this week.

Scott Brown can be reached at sbrown@tribweb.com or 412-481-5432.

Well congrats to Deshea on the job. My favorite memory of him is when he picked off Romo for a pick six two years ago to end a nice comeback made against the Cowboys. Wonder who our DB coach will be.

hey arizona you want arians too? they shoulda made a clause like it has to be a 2 for 1 deal, if you want townsend you gotta take arians too!

they'd be happy that they're 1 step closer to becoming the team full of pittsburgh castoffs, and we can shoot down 2 birds with 1 stone as far as taking care of the problem

Does the Whiz feel the need to poach our whole staff? But I am happy to hear that for Deshea, especially since I thought he was unceremoniously dumped on the side of the road by us after so many years of being a Steeler....

well lets take a look here....

AZ poached our staff and made it to the superbowl.

GB paoched our staff and philosophy and won a superbowl.

PIT has maintained much of the same staff and has been to 3 of the past 6 superbowls.

i just hope people keep poaching the patriots staff (that is a proven losing formula).
