Steelers hire Tom Bradley as secondary coach

Bradley is set to replace Carnell Lake, who stepped down as Pittsburgh's secondary coach earlier this week.

Tom Bradley is the Steelers' new defensive backs coach, the team announced on Thursday. 

Bradley served as UCLA's defensive coordinator from 2015-17. Before that, he spent one season as the defensive line coach/assistant head coach at West Virginia. The bulk of Bradley's coaching career has taken place at Penn State, starting as a graduate assistant in 1979 and finishing as the team's interim head coach in 2011. He was a member of both of Penn State's national championship teams in 1981 and 1987. 

“I want to thank Coach (Mike) Tomlin and the entire Steelers organization for this opportunity,” Bradley said in a statement. “I am excited to be a part of such a rich tradition here. We have a great nucleus in the defensive backs room, and my goal is to help this group continue to grow and develop as we all work toward one goal.”

A native of Johnstown, Pa., Bradley served as the Nittany Lions' defensive coordinator from 2000-11, winning the AP Defensive Coordinator of the Year award in 2005. Under Bradley's leadership, Penn State’s defense ranked third in the nation in Scoring Defense (16.4 ppf) and was fifth in Total Defense (298.7 yards per game) during his final eight seasons as defensive coordinator.

Bradley will join a Pittsburgh defense that finished first in the NFL in sacks, seventh in scoring, fifth in yards allowed, fifth in pass defense and 10th against the run in 2017.
