Carnell Lake Interviewing To Be Steelers' Secondary Coach

Former Steelers safety Carnell Lake is in Pittsburgh today to interview to be the Steelers' secondary coach. Lake would replace Ray Horton, who left to become the Arizona Cardinals' defensive coordinator.

Lake is one of the team's all-time best safeties, recording 16 interceptions, 17 fumble recoveries and 25 sacks from 1989 to 1998. He also had five defensive touchdowns.

Lake was a secondary coach at his alma mater, UCLA, in 2009, but resigned after one season because of family reasons.

After retiring in 2001, Lake apparently worked in business for a while. He then took the UCLA job and also served as a coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. He played for the Jaguars and Ravens at the end of his career, but he'll be remembered for his strong play while he was a Steeler, so perhaps it's appropriate that he might be coming back. Behind The Steel Curtain has a nice article on Lake here.
