Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has been coaching in the NFL since 1973, and has long been known as one of the best defensive minds in football. But before LeBeau was roaming the sidelines and sending in playcalls, he spent 14 seasons as a defensive back for the Detroit Lions. LeBeau, a product of Ohio State, was part of one of the best secondaries in football at the time, but he’s been out of uniform for more than 40 years. That didn’t stop Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor.
Always a fantastic interview, Taylor places LeBeau at the top of his list, disregarding the fact LeBeau isn’t eligible to be one of the Top 100 players of 2014.
