Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward has a new coaching job at a major college football program.

Ward is joining the Arizona State Sun Devils as coach Kenny Dillingham’s new wide receivers coach, according to multiple reports. The job marks Ward’s highest-profile coaching position to date since he ended his playing career.

Ward has some previous coaching assistance, and also served as wide receivers coach at Florida Atlantic in 2021. He was most recently the head coach of the XFL’s San Antonio Brahmas last season.

Though he is serious about getting into coaching, Ward remains best known for his on-field exploits with the Steelers. The two-time Super Bowl winner remains the franchise’s all-time leader in catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns. He has bounced around in his coaching career, but has previously landed at least one NFL head coaching interview since his playing career ended.
