    Deshea Townsend: Cardinals newest coaching addition

    Cardinals hire former Steeler Townsend as coach
    By Scott Brown, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
    Thursday, February 10, 2011

    The Arizona Cardinals added more Steelers flavor to their coaching staff Thursday when they hired Deshea Townsend.

    Townsend, who played cornerback for the Steelers from 1998-09, will coach the Cardinals' secondary. Townsend joined the Cardinals' staff a day after Ray Horton, his former position coach, was hired as Arizona's defensive coordinator.

    Horton coached the Steelers' defensive backs for seven seasons before leaving for Arizona.

    The Cardinals have six coaches on their staff with Steelers ties, starting with head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

    This is Townsend's first coaching job. He played as recently as last season, appearing in eight games for the Indianapolis Colts before getting waived in November. In 12 seasons with the Steelers, Townsend intercepted 21 passes.

    He returned to the Pittsburgh area after the Colts released him, and Townsend had been working as a guest host for Trib LIVE, a sport-driven Internet radio show that launched last month.
