A month after he was let go as defensive coordinator of the Titans, Chuck Cecil is trying to catch on with another AFC team.
Cecil is interviewing with the Steelers for the job of secondary coach, ESPN is reporting.
Before he was fired last month, Cecil had spent a decade as an assistant to Jeff Fisher in Tennessee, first as defensive quality control coach, then as safeties and nickel backs coach, then as defensive backs coach and finally as defensive coordinator.
Cecil was a safety for the Packers, Cardinals and Oilers in the 1980s and 1990s. In 1993 he became the poster boy for the NFL’s crackdown on helmet-to-helmet hits, landing him on a Sports Illustrated cover that asked, “Is Chuck Cecil Too Vicious for the NFL?”
If Cecil gets the Pittsburgh job he’ll surely have some interesting conversations with James Harrison.
