The Steelers might be reaching back into their past to hire a secondary coach to replace Ray Horton.
Former safety Carnell Lake, a five-time Pro Bowl selection who played 10 seasons with the Steelers, is at the team's South Side facility today to interview for that position with Coach Mike Tomlin.
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.
Horton left after the Super Bowl to become defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals.
