The Pittsburgh Steelers hired Daryl Drake as the team's new wide receivers coach.
Drake, who has been an assistant coach in the NFL for 14 years, has accepted Tomlin’s offer to replace the retired Richard Mann to coach the Steelers wide receivers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Drake was the Arizona Cardinals’ wide receivers coach the past five seasons.
Drake coached wide receivers from 1992 to 1996 at the University of Georgia when Ward was there. He began his coaching career at Western Kentucky in 1983, moved to Georgia, Baylor and the University of Texas before joining the Chicago Bears staff in 2004. He left the Bears for the Cardinals in 2013.
