The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Wednesday morning that Terry Cousin has been hired as the team’s Player Engagement Coordinator.
Cousin, a former NFL cornerback who played with six different teams over the course of 12 seasons, previously held that same job last season with the Chicago Bears. He also spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their director of player engagement.
Cousin will reportedly assist Steelers players with their continuing education and also promote player involvement in charity work and community activism in Pittsburgh. He will also likely help rookies with their transition into the league as well as helping players transition to life after football, just as he did with the Bears and Buccaneers.
Cousin will essentially be taking over for Ray Jackson, who left the Steelers in May to become the director of player development for the Denver Broncos. Jackson had been with the Steelers for 10 seasons.
