Buccaneers Hire Former Steeler Randle El



Steelers WR Antwaan Randle El

Antwaan Randle El is a name Steelers fans are very familiar with, and now he’s back in the NFL. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have hired the Super Bowl XL hero to join their coaching staff as an offensive assistant, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Randle El, who was drafted in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Indiana University, spent 5 of his 9 seasons in the league in Pittsburgh, including two with new Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians. He still holds the distinction as the only receiver to ever throw a touchdown pass in a Super Bowl, when he connected with teammate Hines Ward for one of the most iconic plays in Steelers history.

Since retiring as a player in 2010, Randle El has spent time as a sideline reporter for NFL Network and the Big Ten Network.

Randle El accumulated 370 receptions, 8,783 yards combined as a receiver and returner and 27 total touchdowns for the Steelers and Washinton Redskins.
