Pittsburgh Steelers Hire Former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Tom Bradley

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hiring former Penn State and UCLA defensive coordinator Tom Bradley to be their secondary coach, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Bradley coached at Penn State under Joe Paterno from 1979 through 2011. When the all-time winningest coach was fired in the wake of the Sandusky scandal, Bradley was named interim head coach after serving 11 years as Paterno’s defensive coordinator. He also played defensive back for the team from 1975-1978.

After Penn State hired Bill O’Brien in 2012, Bradley resigned following his 37-year stint in Happy Valley and took two years off from coaching football until 2014, when he was named the associate head coach for West Virginia. After a year in Morgantown, he served three years as UCLA’s defensive coordinator, but was not retained by new head coach Chip Kelly.

Bradley will join a Steelers’ staff that his brother works for as the team surgeon.
