The Pittsburgh Steelers named James Saxon as their new running backs coach.
He replaces Kirby Wilson, who's now the Minnesota Vikings running backs coach.
Saxon was the Vikings' running backs coach for the previous three seasons.
He has also coached running backs for the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.
Saxon was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the sixth round of the 1988 NFL draft. In his eight NFL seasons, Saxon played for the Chiefs, the Dolphins and the Philadelphia Eagles (1995). He appeared in 111 career games, rushing for 533 yards and five touchdowns. He had 69 career receptions for 515 yards.
